Decision time is fast approaching. Marshal Ben Corrigan is nearing retirement
from a long, rewarding career as a roving law officer in the Northeast New
Mexico territory circa 1886. Moving into the unknown and uncertain realm of
retirement has little appeal to him. His romantic interest, widow Rachel
Langford, wants him to turn in his badge and settle down with her. However,
even though he finds it tempting, he still has misgivings which are not all
related to leaving his life-fulfilling profession.
Compounding his uncertainty is his own survival. A routine assignment to
transport a man who murdered a deputy sheriff in the town of Iron Horse
Junction to the territorial capital of Santa Fe goes awry. The struggles
he endures during this incident will finally cause him to make his
fateful decision, Whatever he chooses – everything hangs on his ability to
survive his present ordeal.

I’ve always enjoyed historical fiction. Previously, I published,
Truncate, a suspense novel set in late Victorian London. My
present novel also occurs in the same period, but its location
is thousands of miles away in the rugged American Southwest,
a world apart from the metropolitan atmosphere of Victorian
London. However. for me, it holds the same strong allure. The
romantic and sturdy icon of the people in the American West
coping with the later stages of the American frontier in the
19th century is instilled in American culture. I’ve always been
a fan of this American epoch. lt’s from this inspiration that I
spun a tale that involves the romance, conflicts, and the human
touch of this genre.
