Nothing is as it seems on the snowy frontier. Preacher returns in a hoof-pounding adventure by the New York Timesbestselling author of Preacher’s Justice.
Before he became a legend, Preacher was a trapper peacefully plying his trade in the Rocky Mountains. But people needed a hero . . . and Preacher was the only one around.
Now a wagon train of pioneers is struggling westward toward Oregon through the howling winter—and a band of Arikara warriors are hot on their trail. Little do the Arikaras suspect that they’re about to come face-to-face—and gun-to-gun—with a ferocious fight they never expected . . . courtesy of a wily mountain man. As Preacher struggles to bring the settlers to safety, he learns the real reason they were attacked—and begins to suspect that the secrets they’ve been keeping equal a worse kind of danger. With treachery in the air, more Arikaras on the warpath, and a deadly deep freeze bearing down, trust is a thing of the past—and survival is all that matters.
