Book Four of The Clint Mason Series by William F. Martin.

Into New Mexico Territory rides a young, well-educated gambler and gunman. Santa Fe is Clint Mason’s chosen destination, where he seeks to peacefully acquire land and start his dream horse ranch. Because of a wrongful murder charge stemming back to an event that occurred when he was 16, Clint is also a wanted man. His education has helped develop his uncanny skills in poker and reading people, and the huge winnings at poker tables have brought many challenges his way. By necessity, his natural skills with guns have developed to a high level of professionalism.

Will Clint’s past or his latest deadly confrontations keep him from obtaining a prized piece of land outside of Santa Fe on the Rio Pecos?
