"Characters as explosive as forty-rod whiskey, and a plot that slams readers with the impact of a Winchester slug!"--Johnny D. Boggs, Spur Award-Winning Author

Bounty Hunter Lou Prophet is stalking the notorious train robber Frank Beauregard, a man with as much conscience as a rattlesnake with a baby rabbit in its craw.
This snake, however, has a woman in his craw - an innocent young woman who came west from Minnesota to be the mail-order bride of a lonely rancher.
Miss Mattie Anderson finds her new home high in the Colorado Rockies far from what she'd expected. She finds her husband-to-be far from what she'd expected, as well.
Why is his hired man so tongue-tied?
Who's the dead man in the shallow grave out back?
As more dead are piled high and the lead flies like snowflakes in a prairie blizzard, Mattie begins to wonder if she hasn't promised herself to the devil himself.
Only Lou Prophet can save her from the ties that not only bind but threaten to hang her...

From the book:

Prophet walked over to where Dodd lay scowling up at the sky, the dust still sifting around him. The black man was breathing hard, grunting, blood oozing out of his mouth to form two thick streams down his chin. More blood welled from the two ragged holes in his pinstriped shirt, just beneath his red bandanna.
His enraged, horrified eyes found Prophet. "Y-you just...killed two lawmen...and a federal tracker," he told the bounty hunter, sneering.
"Bullshit," Prophet said, dropping to a knee to rummage around in the man's pockets. "You're no more lawman than I am, Roy." He grinned as he pulled from the man's vest pocket a rabbit's foot with two small, gold keys attached to it by a slender chain.
He held up the rabbit's foot. "And your luck just ran out."
