It is 1899, and the Silk Trains—with their fragile cargo of silk, valued at three quarters of a million dollars—race across the continent to New York. If the thieves don’t get to them first.
Broke and hungry, gentleman adventurer John Granville finds work guarding the silk trains. His job?—to keep the thieves away. Fleeing his past, Granville can’t seem to find a future. Until one of the would-be thieves is found dead in the rail yards. And Granville’s friend and fellow gold-seeker Sam Scott is arrested for murder. With the Hanging Judge due back in town any day.
Will Granville uncover the truth and find the killer in time to save his friend?
