A gold rush threatens to break the peace of a quiet Colorado town.
Angel’s Landing was the mining town that grew up around a gold strike in the hills of Colorado. But the boom was long ago, and now the town is a whisper of what it once was. Mark Girard was a young boy when he witnessed firsthand what happened to a town when all of its residents vanished. It was a simple, quiet life that Mark had chosen to lead, and he and his closest friends much preferred it to the wild boom times.
When the job as sheriff for Bremer County opened, Mark ran for the office and won. It was a relatively easy job, until news broke that there was a new gold strike on Banjo Creek. It quickly became clear that the boom days were about to return, and with them the wild lawlessness that accompanies a gold rush.
Will Mark have the courage and the wits to keep Angel’s Landing from descending into chaos? With Law at Angel’s Landing, acclaimed Western author Wayne Overholser paints a vivid picture of untamed life in the American frontier.
