Unctuous, yet honorable, Buford Allen embodied the spirit and passions of the West. But this time something was wrong. Why was his father so set on buying a ranch in Warhorse, Montana of all places? And what was in the tattered suitcase hidden under the hotel bed?

"Buford Allen's fortunes in the post-Civil War West have gone from boom to bust and back again many times. Allen wants to make one last deal, a cattle drive from San Antonio to remote Warhorse, Montana. George Guidall once again presents a fully voiced reading, which conveys the tension between Allen and the other characters. The unscrupulous financier, Dixon, sounds thoroughly detestable; the elderly Confederate colonel sounds dignified and beleaguered; the Mexican spy sounds deceptively canny. This evocative period novel is very entertaining. N.B.H. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
