Hickok and Cody

Matt Braun

St. Martin's Paperbacks

The West made legends of two men. Heaven help the fool who dared to risk their wrath.

In a windswept campsite of the Fifth Cavalry Regiment, Russia's Grand Duke Alexis has arrived to experience the thrill of the buffalo hunt. His guides are Wild Bill Hickok and Buffalo Bill Cody--two heroic deadshots with a flair for showmanship and a thirst for adventure. But a train approaching from the East will provide Alexis a front-row seat to murder and mayhem that will set Hickok and Cody on the trail of cold-blooded killers.

The Orphan Train is nothing more than a traveling asylum for young urchins, stolen off the streets of New York's Lower East Side. Across the country they will be sold to the highest bidder--unless stopped in their tracks. Hickok and Cody take on the task, and begin a deadly cross-country journey tat will end in the wilds of Manhattan. Their quest for justice pits them against underworld thugs and raw corruption in a bloodbath that rocks the city. New York will never be the same again...

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 more than forty novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries, and One Last Town, which was made into a TNT movie called You Know My Name. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Golden Spur Award for The Kincaids. He is also the recipient of the Cowboy Spirit Award and was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1999.
