The greatest Western writers of the 21st Century, William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone, continue their epic tale of a Rebel doctor surviving in the lawless aftermath of the Civil War...
When the war ended, Dr. Samuel Knight went home to Texas--but the life he expected was in ruins, his wife married to a carpetbagger. Trying to defend what's left of his previous existence, the good doctor is branded an outlaw and driven from Texas. Now he's laying low in New Mexico, with his image on wanted posters everywhere. But when the town explodes in violence, Knight will risk his neck to save innocent lives.
After a cave-in injures a team of miners, Knight throws his cover aside to tend to their wounds. He catches the eye of Helena "Hellfire" Bonham, the mine's owner, who's wrapped up in a murderous dispute with her ex-husband over control of the land. She thinks he was responsible for the cave-in and wants Knight to prove it. She's chosen well, because if Dr. Samuel Knight is quick with a scalpel, he's even faster with a gun.

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
"Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.'"
