About

Overview

A Booklist Top 10 Western Author of the Decade

Leader of the last of the great outlaw bands – the Olklahombres, Bill Doolin outfoxed the law while trying to walk the line between being a good man and bad. He was a family man and a bank and train and stagecoach robber. By the end of his reign, almost every one of his gang had been gunned down, and now the law was out to finish him as well. But it would not be easy, not even for the likes of the famed U.S. Marshals led by Heck Thomas. A fictional account based on factual evidence about the last of the badmen.

Customer Reviews

“Brooks imbues each of the characters with a unique personality and moral code. The lawmen aren’t all heroic; the outlaws aren’t inherently evil. A fine historical novel, with appeal beyond western fans.”

— Booklist

“Another riveting tale from an acknowledged master of the western genre . . . a fictional account based on factual evidence about the last of the badmen and unreservedly recommended for community library Western Fiction collections and the personal reading lists of western action/adventure fans.”
