Summary

Tom Walker cannot believe his luck when he joins his father on the road, selling Samuel Colt’s newly invented revolver. On the road west the towns get smaller and the path more unforgiving.

A devastating encounter cuts their journey short, and leaves Tom alone in the wilderness. Tom’s resolve to survive initiates an unlikely partnership that will be tested by the dangers of the road, where outlaws prowl.

Critic reviews

‘It’s a thrilling, violent, dangerous piece of old-fashioned storytelling that is also humane and unshowily moving’ THE TIMES
‘A twisty, gripping first novel from British author Lautner… a robust debut that wears its meticulous research lightly’ KIRKUS REVIEWS
