One of the bestselling novelists of the American West brings us a gripping tale of gold, greed, and vengeance. Three brothers find a lode of gold at Thunder Mountain. But instead of finding peace and prosperity, Jake, Kalispel, and Sam Emerson find more treachery than any normal men could hope to survive. Before they can get the claim registered, one of the brothers is killed by a claim jumper and the other is beaten and robbed of his ore sample. A boom town rises around the new mine while the youngest brother plots to find a way to force Rand Leavitt, the mine’s owner to admit to the murder. A very complex story of danger and greed that ends with a real unexpected happening.
