But for John Creed, agent for the famed Faraday Security Service, it was anything but simple. First, Hank Miles was willing to do whatever was required to prevent the plan from succeeding. Hiding in the shadows was a silent partner. Creed’s biggest threat, however, came from the man in black—an assassin who took pleasure in his work and would not stop coming until the job was complete.
Before the Buffalo Train reached the end of the line, guns would roar, men would die, and Chicago would get a taste of what the “Wild West” was really like.
The train-top murder of one of his female operatives has thrust Matthew Faraday, the wily chief of Faraday Security Service, into the dark and twisting tunnel of another railroad mystery, and a coded message in the dead woman's pocket is the only clue.
Gabe Hansen is determined to build a railroad from Albuquerque to the Pacific Ocean, but first, he must deal with two major adversaries.
One is Bernardo Tafoya, a Mexican who does all he can to prevent the railroad from coming through land that his family holds by virtue of an old Spanish land grant. The other obstacle to the railroad is Peter Van Zandt, son of Emory Van Zandt, the financier who is backing the railroad. Peter wants to get control of the railroad for himself.
Makenna O'Shea is a beautiful young woman who becomes a surprisingly strong ally, falling in love with Gabe in the process. Makenna is forced to make a decision that saves the railroad, but at the expense of her relationship with Gabe.
