Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Rakeheart, Wyoming, is a town with troubles. Murders. Violence. Deceit. Into its crosscurrents comes Kane, a troubleshooter sent west to learn why ex-army officer Jared Wilkins was killed. Kane encounters hostility at every turn. The rancher's widow emerges as his prime suspect even as the townspeople who ask him to become sheriff make it clear they are playing a deceitful game. As Kane tries to impose law and order on a town that has its own purposes at heart, he struggles to plumb the depths of Rachel Wilkins, who holds tightly to her own secrets. When the violence erupts, he is left with no allies except Rachel as they wage one fiery battle for the future, and the soul, of Rakeheart.

    Rakeheart's main gunslinger, Kane, is a confidante of General William Tecumseh Sherman, so the social and economic tensions of the era are easily identifiable, and the novel is infused with a sense of historical solemnity. At the request of Sherman, Kane travels to Rakeheart, a town in the Wyoming Territory, to investigate a murder. As Kane studies the facts, the potential list of suspects seems to narrow. Within a few short months, however, he uncovers a conspiracy of violence that will shake even the U.S. Army to its core. Though there are clues sprinkled throughout the text, it's a challenge to identify the mastermind behind the vicious plan. Readers are introduced to the usual cast (a loathsome saloon owner, a scheming bank manager, carousing cowboys, town drunks), yet Davis (Black Wind Pass, 2017) crafts them delicately. He is especially careful with the women: they are simultaneously world-weary yet perceptive and kind. Using terse sentences and gruff vernacular, Davis offers a window into Kane's motivation while inching the plot to its grand showdown. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
