Classification: Non-Fiction

Synopsis: Once he was Tom Cade, lawman and gunfighter. Now, he is Amos Hood, preacher. He left the way of the gun to spread the Word of the Lord.
 
When Hood rides into Gold Town, it’s clear the place is badly in need of two things: the law of God and the law of man. With miners and cowboys feuding and killing each other in the streets and the saloons, someone has to bring order.  Now a man of peace, Hood sets about building a church and gathering a flock. But the townsfolk, desperate to control the miners and cowboys, hire a shootist with a trail of corpses behind him to wear a badge.
 
With rustlers re-branding cattle stolen from neighboring ranches and miners trying to stake claims to land near water, Gold Town is poised to explode into a range war. And if that happens Amos Hood may not have a prayer of keeping the peace—or of keeping his own violent past a secret.
