Stone-Hearted Gun

A novel by

Rain Lonigan was a ranch owner in Squaw Gap, with a beautiful wife who was carrying their third child. Asked to stand in for the injured town marshal, Lonigan took his duties seriously. Outlaw Wade McKitrick had been sentenced to prison and a life of hard labor. He was assisted in escaping from the chain gang in return for committing the murder of Senator Johnston Pettigrew. Reunited with his brothers and compadres, Wade and his group traveled to Squaw Gap, in order to follow through with the assassination of the Senator. On the day the Senator came to town, temporary Marshal Rain Lonigan's world was torn to shreds when his wife was hit by a stray bullet. The town doctor managed to save the child she was carrying, but not the mother.

Bent on justice coupled with vengeance, Lonigan left his three children in the care of the doctor and his wife then headed out on the trail of the outlaws who had destroyed his world. Along the way he enlisted the help of a friend and former plainsman, Canada Reese. Meanwhile, Wade McKitrick and his brother, Tanner, had been captured in Bozeman where they had gone in attempt to retrieve the remainder of the money due them for the assassination job. Lonigan found, once he hit Bozeman, that the outlaws he was seeking were destined to be lynched, and the town sheriff would be leading it. Lonigan and Reese had other plans, to bust the outlaws out of jail and transport them back to Squaw Gap for trial. They never dreamed they would find themselves in a bloody battle for their lives, and the lives of their prisoners.
