Seven legendary authors unite to tell the story of one incredible character in a novel unlike any other: Elmer Kelton, Judy Alter, Loren D. Estleman, James Reasoner, Jane Candia Coleman, Ed Gorman, and Robert J. Randisi.
For the first time, these amazing talents--combined winners of 14 Spur Awards!--have joined forces, and the result is truly the stuff of legend. Together they recount the life of Lyle Speaks, from his hardscrabble boyhood in Texas to his later years as an aging cattle rancher in Montana, years in which his colorful past may yet come back to haunt him. From one end of the West to the other, Lyle's exploits made him famous--admired by some, feared by others. But now Lyle wants to set the record straight. No matter what the cost.
