One man with a duty to the dead and a lethal talent honed by war . . .
The first book in a new western series that examines the life of Jed Wells, a veteran of the Civil War determined never to take another life. When he encounters a man from his past it may require Jed to forsake his vow.
The story of the Andersonville prison camp was written in blood, with few left alive to tell it. Union Army sharpshooter Jed Wells was one of them, a man of conscience sworn to share the tales of those who suffered and died beside him. It is a promise that has brought Jed to Kansas and to small-town sheriff Amos Broughton, a friend and fellow survivor of hell on Earth.
But the ghosts that haunt Broughton are demanding and hungry. And his dangerous obsession with a mysterious man of God threatens to explode in a vengeful rain of bullets and death - forcing Jed Wells to take up his rifle once again to save a soul damned by terrible secrets buried with the bones of captured soldiers in the Georgia mud.
