Intrigue, mystery, murder, 1905, Pearce, Arizona Territory.
Micah Rogers is summoned to the gold rush boomtown of Pearce by a friend in desperate need of help. Indeed, the situation is one of life or death and involves a mysterious object men have killed to possess. This object found its way from Cuba to Arizona Territory among the belongings of a former member of the United States Volunteer Cavalry during the Spanish-American War, and by possessing it, the soldier has placed a bull's-eye firmly on his back.
No sooner does Rogers set foot on the bustling Pearce streets than he is ambushed by men unknown and left to perish in the unforgiving desert. His discovery of a corpse tossed down a coyote hole is only the beginning of what lies ahead for the former Rough Rider/lawman.
Rogers' dangerous quest to prevent the murder of a friend while ferreting out what power lies behind the hunt to capture the unknown prize forces him to trust again in his own judgment, and in the judgment of another on the same quest.
