The Mountain Man series, featuring legendary Smoke Jensen, continues to satisfy a legion of loyal readers, with boldly authentic stories that vividly capture the American frontier. Justice of the Mountain finds Smoke Jensen drawn into a fist-fight by a slick-talking thief named the Durango Kid. But when Jensen walked away, nobody was dead.
It isn’t long, though, before U.S. Marshal Bill Tilghman has the Mountain Man arrested for the murder of one of Durango’s gang and headed for a hanging judge in Arkansas. That’s when Smoke knows that he’s going to have to bust out of Tilghman’s jail, hunt down the Durango Kid, and find the truth behind a brutal murder. But there are two things Smoke never counted on: saving Marshall Bill Tilghman’s life — and fighting him again.
