The Ash Tallman Series (Volume 2)

Matt Braun

St. Martin's Paperbacks

They'd killed five men already, and stole a quarter of a million dollars in silver and gold. Now, a band of vicious thieves has drawn the best man that Wells Fargo can send: the rangy, mysterious Chicago-based Pinkerton agent named Ash Tallman. An operator who works with a pleasure- loving beauty who goes by many names and does her best work in the least amount of clothes, Tallman is heading to Red Rock, Arizona territory.

For while the killing goes down in Red Rock, the planning takes place in Tucson. And that's where two outgunned Pinkertons must face an evil all its own...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Matt Braun

  • Matt Braun is a fourth generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.

    Braun is the author of forty-four novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novel The Kincaids.
