The third book in Mark Warren's historical fiction trilogy ends with a bang.
In Tombstone, Arizona Territory, despite a silver strike promising entrepreneurial opportunities, Wyatt Earp returns to law enforcement, posing a new threat to the cow-boy rustlers running rampant on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. The Earp brothers make as many enemies as they do allies in a deeply divided community. Aspiring to be county sheriff, Wyatt bargains with outlaw informants in his pursuit of three wanted men. When the deal unravels, the cow-boy traitors fear retribution from their own, planting the seed for the thirty seconds that will ensure Wyatt Earp his place in history—the gunfight that erupts behind the O.K. Corral. What follows—assassination and swift justice—guarantees that Wyatt Earp's name will forever serve as one standard within the debate of law versus order.
