But crossing the open prairie with four wagons full of gold may bring Wiley a lethal set of new problems.
With desperate outlaws and opportunistic deserters at every turn, Wiley and the other McCoys must watch their backs to survive. But they never expected their greatest enemy to come in the form of ten brilliant Pinkerton detectives…
Can Wiley make it home before the lawmen slip a rope around his neck?
