This western in Ralph Compton's USA Today bestselling series goes from the mean streets of New York City to the lawless frontier...
Ordered to head west when a notorious New York City gangster puts a price on his head, Detective Sergeant Joseph McBride ends up in the lawless boomtown of High Hopes, Colorado. But running goes against the lawman’s grain, and so does lying low. In a town where miners and innocents are easy prey, McBride quickly runs afoul of corrupt saloon owner Gamble Trask and his vicious hired guns.
When a beautiful card dealer comes to McBride for protection, he vows to take down Trask and destroy his vile trade in opium and Chinese slave girls once and for all. Now, it’s high time for one of New York’s finest to dole out some frontier justice of his own.
