During the last few days of the Civil War, a company of Confederate raiders rode into the small Kansas town of Elbow. There they raped, pillaged and murdered among the local populace, thus triggering a chain of events and a chase that extended for more than 1,000 miles across the grasslands and mountains of Kansas and the deserts of New Mexico.
Along the way, Confederate Lieutenant Jesse Quintana, a ruthless, cold-blooded killer without a conscience, along with his men massacred a band of Comanche women and children, fought two battles with Comanche War Chief White Eagle, and murdered and plundered his way southwest along the Santa Fe Trail.
Quintana had a nine-day start over his pursuers, Captain Ignatius O'Sullivan and Sergeant Major Boone Coffin, along with an Osage Indian scout and a small company of Federal cavalry. The climactic end to the chase came among the mountains on the Mexican border six weeks after it began.
You will remember O'Sullivan and Coffin from the author's previous novel, The Mule Soldiers. Their adventures continue.

This is a fantastic story. A gripping and thrilling western. A tale of a chase across Indian infested territory.
Both heroes and villians are well written with strong characteristics.

A really great story of the wild times of war
I really enjoyed listening to this story. Mr Willis is a very talented narrator and he did an excellent job with all the different characters. I especially liked his Irish brogue as he played the part of Mr. O'Sullivan and the voice he made for the Confederate soldier Quintana. I think I should forewarn readers and listeners of this book that there are a couple of parts that are very difficult to hear and there is violence and profanity as you would expect with the subject of this book. I'm glad that I have started reading and listening to Mr. Howard's books, I really enjoy them.
I received a free audio copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own honest opinion.

Chilling story of the last days of the civil was, and the Confederate . Traveling across Kansas and New Mexico and the massacre they did, along the Santa Fe Trail. The chase lasted six weeks.
The narration was good and brought this story to life of what happened. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
