"MATT BRAUN IS A MASTER STORYTELLER OF FRONTIER HISTORY." -Elmer Kelton

In a place called No Man's Land
Texas rancher Ben Langham hireD Luke Starbuck for his loyalty and toughness gained by riding with Rip Ford's Texas volunteers. But when Langham sent Starbuck after a band of horse thieves, a loyal man left behind the only home he had ever known-and met the stranger in himself.

One man found a home...
To track down a thief, Starbuck posed as an outlaw, misled his woman, and killed to protect his own life. Then he rode into a kingdom of vicious horse thieves and entered into a fierce duel with a criminal mastermind hiding behind a respectable life. Somewhere along the line, honest, hardworking Starbuck discovered that he was a changed man-one who had forged himself a freedom and a future in a place where other men died...
