Two men are on a collision course. Bass Reeves, who wears a deputy marshal's star, has sworn to uphold the law. The other is Marion Michael Donovan, a ruthless killer who murdered his first man at age fourteen. In the Indian Territories to investigate a group of white men selling guns to the Indians, Reeves enlists the help of an Indian deputy, Walks as Bear. Donovan has taken over the town of Temptation and, using a stolen Gatling gun, plans to rob a train carrying a shipment of gold. After discovering that Donovan is responsible for the murder of some Texas Rangers, Reeves finds himself in a race against time to stop the killers and prevent another massacre.

Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves is a man of the lawâhe always gives the culprit a chance to confess before he pulls the trigger. Reeves is also illiterate and an ex-slave, but Judge Parker is happy to read the warrants aloud in order to employ Reeves' skills and dedication. It's 1879, and the judge sends Reeves and an Indian deputy to stop the sale of guns and liquor in the Indian Territories. The two lawmen eliminate the thieves, permanently, but they stumble on a bigger problem: a psychopath with a Gatling gun. By pumping weak links in the man's organization, Reeves learns he's planning to rob a train by mowing down a platoon of soldiers. Reeves has to stop him. The denouement that follows, unlike earlier shoot-outs, is gripping, across-the-board violence. The train robbery is a doozy and Reeves is a protagonist to follow. The Old West was not a politically correct place, and Black's novel abounds with ethnic slurs and language that may jar modern readers. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
