Firefall

Cameron Judd

St. Martin's Paperbacks

He brings the Old West to vivid new life in his action-packed stories of heroism, adventure and excitement. With over two million of his books in print, Cameron Judd powerfully depicts, as no other writer can, the struggles of a generation of Americans on a harsh and beautiful frontier.

Montana Territory, 1884. A huge fire has consumed the sin-soaked town of Gomorrah, just as crazy "Parson" Peabody, a drunken, broken-down preacher, had foretold. With the town in ruins, con man Gib Rankin sees a chance to profit from Parson's "gift." Meanwhile, young Alex Gunnison passes through Gomorrah looking for Brady Kenton, his friend and fellow Gunnison's Illustrated American reporter. Is the badly burned body he discovers really that of Kenton? What connection does Rankin-with Parson and a mysterious woman in tow-have to the lost reporter? And what of the unexplained "firefall" that seems to spontaneously ignite an entire town? Gunnison carves a trail through Montana and Idaho to find some hard answers-and test his own courage as a journalist, a friend, and a man...
