Falconer Series (Book 3)
1846. The territory of New Mexico has fallen to United States forces. Hugh Falconer - tracker, trapper, explorer, mountain man - rides to Taos to rendezvous with old friends at the wilderness outpost of Turley's Mill. Falconer doesn't know it but he's heading into a deadly trap. Mexicans and Indians have united against the new American lords of the land. Falconer finds himself among the handful of trappers and traders surrounded by an angry mob bent on spilling their blood. Nine men standing against hundreds. Maybe they would die, but not like rats in a trap. They would die like men - mountain men.
