And by the time he reached the foothills of the Big Horns he had a good idea what it was: he'd been set up to be killed.ANY MOMENT COULD BE YOUR LAST...Now, making his way among lawmen, gunmen, and free spirits riding on both sides of the law, Starbuck is traveling to Salt Lake City and all the way back to Denver to find the mystery man who wants him dead. But with key players dying every step of the way, Starbuck must find his answers within his own violent past-and in a Badlands town called Deadwood, where secrets are sealed in blood."BRAUN IS ONE OF THE BEST!"-Don Coldsmith, author of the Spanish Bit series

Author Biography - Matt Braun
Matt Braun is a fourth-generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.Braun is the author of more than forty novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries, and One Last Town, which was made into a TNT movie called You Know My Name. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Golden Spur Award for The Kincaids. He is also the recipient of the Cowboy Spirit Award and was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1999.
