Hellgate. The name strikes fear throughout Arizona Territory. Mason McCabe's nightmarish village huddles in an extinct volcano's crater. His business is stolen goods and stolen women. All criminals welcome. Outlaw Caleb Connor is protecting the captive Rose LaBelle, but her life is endangered when McCabe takes a personal interest in her. As Rose fights the horrors of Hellgate, her Aunt Mary Alice, at home in the territorial capital of Prescott, struggles with her own bondage - to laudanum, alcohol, and morphine. Fast-paced and filled with realistic characters and historic detail, Hellgate is a story of courage, redemption, and triumph over despair.
