Deadly Is The Night

In the latest installment of his epic Byrnes family saga, Western Heritage and Spur Award-winning author Dusty Richards tells of the blood that was spilled trying to make Arizona Territory a good place to live

Rancher, gunslinger, and family man, Chet Byrnes lives to tame the deserts of Arizona, but if the mail can’t get through, he knows civilization will not take root. When a wealthy tycoon’s attempt to found a postal route in desolate northern Arizona falters, Chet takes the reins. Riding a buckboard across open, hostile country, Chet sets out to deliver the mail.But a trio of gunmen ambush him in the desert. They destroy his buckboard, but make the fatal mistake of leaving Chet alive. In an era when the price of a stamp was paid in blood, Chet Byrnes will blaze a trail across the west to make Arizona safe for the U.S. mail—or die trying.

“Dusty takes readers into the real west at full gallop.” —New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas
