Cole Sanborn has a notorious reputation and seems to be the culprit behind the robbery of the K&J Express train. Rather than hide out, Cole casually hangs out in plain view of the town of Jonesboro knowing someone impersonated him. In fact, he volunteers to help Sheriff Magruder solve the case. He soon finds the town and its officials under the thumb of power hungry Chet Radbourne. ...
After many tangles with Radbourne and his gang, there is a grand finale complete with a burning farmhouse, shoot outs, hand to hand battles, cowardly escapes, a solution to the train robbery, and the fruition of the long hoped for romance.—Eden Thompson @ Goodreads.com.

Author Bio for Raine, William MacLeod
William MacLeod Raine (1871-1954)
William MacLeod Raine was a British-born American novelist, born in London, the son of William and Jessie Raine. After his mother died, his family migrated from England to Arkansas when Raine was ten years old, eventually settling on a cattle ranch near the Texas-Arkansas border. In 1894, after graduating from Oberlin College, Raine left Arkansas and headed for the western U.S. He became the principal of a school in Seattle while contributing columns to a local newspaper. Later he moved to Denver, where he worked as a reporter and editorial writer for local periodicals.
At this time, he began to publish short stories, eventually becoming a full-time free-lance fiction writer, and finally finding his literary home in the novel. His earliest novels were romantic histories taking place in the English countryside. However, after spending some time with the Arizona Rangers, Raine shifted his literary focus and began to utilize the American West as a setting. The publication of Wyoming in 1908 marks the beginning of his prolific career, during which time he averaged nearly two western novels a year until his death in 1954. Though he was prolific, he was a slow, careful, conscientious worker, intent on accurate detail, and considered himself a craftsman rather than an artist.
In 1959, he was inducted into the Hall of Great Westerners of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
