Tensions are high in the American West.
The race is on to see which company can be the first to reach the Apache Pass with their iron rail tracks.
S & W and Pacific West are neck and neck.
But this is a dangerous game.
High stakes mean ambushes and gun fights are all part of the competition.
Chet Manning, S & W’s chief troubleshooter, is willing to die for the success of the railroad and there isn’t an outlaw or gunslinger in the territory who doesn’t fear his lethal approach.
However, even the best can be defeated and Ben Yaro threatens to do just that in his determination to put S & W completely out of business.
With a traitor in their midst, numerous attempts on his life and a known weakness for women, Manning desperately tries to save the railroad.
Can he out-smart Yaro and gain control of the railroad?
Or will he lose his reputation – and maybe his life – in the battle?
Troubleshooter is an thrilling, authentic Western that will keep readers gripped from the first page to the last.
