Description

"An entertaining story with lots of plot twists." --Booklist

The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

In a small Texas town in 1950, a Pinkerton detective interrupts an old-timer's game of dominos to learn the truth about Butch Cassidy--who is still very much alive and well. In fact, he's the old-timer playing dominos.

Seems that after surviving the infamous shootout in Bolivia that claimed the life of his partner the Sundance Kid, Butch returns to Texas searching for a place to call home. When he comes across a dying rancher who'd been shot by some rustlers, Butch promises to avenge him--and take over the ranch after his death. Assuming the name Jim Strickland, Butch begins a new chapter in his life. But trouble has a way of finding Butch. A corrupt railroad baron pulls him into the most dangerous train robbery he's ever attempted. But if Butch Cassidy is going to ride again, it'll have to be with a newer, and wilder, Wild Bunch.  .  .

"Johnstone is a masterful storyteller, creating a tale that is fanciful and funny, exciting and surprisingly convincing.  .  .great fun." --Publishers Weekly
