Westerns aren't my favorite read but Bobbi Smith has me nearly
converted. This book opens with the undercover pinkerton man trying to round up a vicious gang. While playing the role he tries to keep harm from befalling "citizens" but in one instance he's unable to. The man is killed. Our hero is subsequently charged with his murder and is in a quandry. Does he give up his cover and forgo his mission or hang! Well he decides to trust the sheriff who doesn't believe him anyway. The judge happens to be the dead man's daughter and she has met our "outlaw" once before and been attracted to him. Of course she fights between the integrity of her job, the justice due her father and this outlaw she is coming to love. The sheriff is a wonderful. The Pinkerton "boss" comes to town to save his partner and he's a hunk. The entire book is filled with action, great characters, angst and a believable story line. It was worthy of at least one sequel.
