From New York Times bestselling authors Mickey Spillane and Max Allan Collins--the legend of Caleb York continues as the renowned gunslinger fights to bring justice to the blood-soaked streets of Trinidad, New Mexico.

Caleb York has made up his mind and packed his bags. He'll be on the next stage, bound for San Diego and a new life as a Pinkerton man. But before Caleb can say a proper goodbye to his sweetheart, Willa, a peaceful morning erupts into blazing gunfire.

Someone has to bring law and order to the wild little town of Trinidad, even as a band of outlaw brothers rides the vengeance trail and a new cattle baron sets his sights on more land. . .and on Willa, too.  Looks like Caleb will be staying on for a while.

With his Colt loaded for justice, and a sheriff's badge on his chest, Caleb York emerges as a classic Western hero who knows just how to stand up to the deadliest of enemies--and win.
