(Book 56 in the Jess Williams Western series)
A novel by

Jess finds himself in a standoff with a woman by the name of Maggie. She is protecting her lover, Kip Jude, who is a violent rapist of young girls. Maggie discovers that he has been deceiving her for years and she ends up killing him before Jess does.

Jess turns the body in to the law in the next town and is surprised when Maggie shows up and asks him to escort her to Colorado in search of her sister. Along the way, they run into a medicine man called Red Moon sitting in the middle of the trail, supposedly waiting for Jess to show up. He informs Jess that he was sent to him by the spirits to escort him to his birthplace at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, so he can fulfill his destiny that has been told to him by his spirits in a vision.

After agreeing to escort the medicine man, they begin a strange journey to Colorado. Jess becomes frustrated along the way and vows to drop them both off somewhere and let them continue on their own. But many unexpected and unexplained things happen along the way that make Jess believe that the medicine man truly did have a vision.

They finish their journey and reach Red Moon’s birthplace by the side of a beautiful lake that now has a fishing camp nearby. They have to wait there for the exact right time that the medicine man must pass on to the spirit world.
