When Cal Carver returns to Arizona looking for his uncle, he’s a very different man…
He’s no longer the boy who’d left town in shame after losing a fight with Buster Forbes.
When Cal sets eyes on Buster Forbes, the two of them immediately pick up where they left off, trying to knock the tar out of each other.
Some things never change.
But when Cal’s uncle is found murdered, Cal will have to combine his new skills as a grown man with his old life in Arizona.
He’ll need to rely on his old friends, but he has no way of knowing which old friends really want to help him and which ones think Cal himself might be the murderer.
At first Cal is happy to work with the Sheriff and his hot-headed deputy, but he’s getting nowhere.
Maybe it’s time for Cal Carver to take the law into his own hands?
But with his own life in the balance, will the gamble pay-off?
Alan David reveals his plot layer by layer, taking the reader on a journey of intrigue and mystery in the Old West.
