David Flynn is a legend in the rugged Arizona Territory--a U.S. cavalry turned army scout and the only man alive who can bring in the fierce Apache renegade Soldado Viejo. Tracking an elusive Indian with a price on his head south of the border is dangerous business. And when a cunning outlaw and a murderous bounty hunter dog his path, Flynn gets on a bloody trail of treachery and slaughter in a lawless land where a man has to watch his back against friend and enemy alike. On the deadliest mission of his career, in a sultry desert hell where the hunter becomes the hunted, Flynn's struggle for justice has just turned into the battle of his lifetime.
About the Author
Elmore Leonard wrote forty-five novels and nearly as many western and crime short stories across his highly successful career that spanned more than six decades. Some of his bestsellers include Road Dogs, Up in Honey's Room, The Hot Kid, Mr. Paradise, Tishomingo Blues, and the critically acclaimed collection of short stories Fire in the Hole. Many of his books have been made into movies, including Get Shorty, Out of Sight, and Rum Punch, which became Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown. Justified, the hit series from FX, is based on Leonard's character Raylan Givens, who appears in Riding the Rap, Pronto, Raylan and the short story "Fire in the Hole." He was a recipient of the National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the Lifetime Achievement Award from PEN USA, and the Grand Master Award of the Mystery Writers of America. He was known to many as the 'Dickens of Detroit' and was a long-time resident of the Detroit area.
