Product Description Milo Talon knew the territory and the good men from the bad. He had ridden the Outlaw Trail and could find out things others couldn’t. That was why a rich man named Jefferson Henry hired Milo to hunt down a missing girl. But from the moment Milo began his search, he knew something wasnĂ‚Â’t right. Three people had already died, an innocent woman was on the run, and a once sleepy town was getting crowded with hired guns. Suddenly, Milo Talon realized that there were still things he had to learn—about the woman he was trying to find, the man who had hired him, and the murderer who wanted him dead. But most of all, Milo had a few things to learn about himself. And he would have to work fast, because one mistake could cost him his life.Ă‚Â… From the Publisher Milo Talon knew the land, and the good men from the bad. He had ridden the Outlaw Trail and could find out things others couldn't, and that's why a rich man named Jefferson Henry hired Milo to hunt down a missing girl. But from the moment Milo began his search he knew something wasn't right. Three people had already died, an innocent woman was on the run, and a once sleepy town was getting crowded with killers and hired guns. Suddenly Milo Talon realized that there were still things he had to learn--to beat out a breed who kept secrets, told lies, and forced an honest man to learn the truth behind the barrel of a gun. ( )

Milo is hired to find a man's long lost grand-daughter. But the more he looks into the matter, the more tangled it becomes. The missing girl's identity keeps changing, and somebody forgot to mention the possibility of hidden gold. When Milo does find her, she turns out to be something more than anyone expects. The plot is a bit convoluted, but the characters are interesting and well-written. ( )

Book description
To Milo Talon there is nothing finer than drifting the far, lonesome country. But times are lean, and Talon hires out for a job that long-hidden secret to a fortune in gold. Along with a beautiful woman driven by a desperate fear, Talon is quickly caught in the gold-crazed treachery of liars, thieves, and murderers tracking his every move.
But when the fighting gets ugly, Talon's rule is plunge in and let the Devil count the dead.
    ---------------------------

    The street was a dusty avenue of waiting death ....

there were four of them at least. They had a plan and they were ready.
"Don't go out there, Milo! Please! " Molly's eyes were wide and scared.
"Now, Molly, those boys have gone to all that trouble just to show me some attention. Least I can do is acknowledge it."
Molly handed me the other six-shooter I had picked-up earlier. She said "you may need an extra."
Now that was a thoughtful lady!
I went through the door slick as a whistle and I already had a gun in my hand.
They went for theirs and I saw a fifth and a sixth man suddenly step into view - one of them with a rifle.
