A USA Today Bestselling Author -- Cotton Pickens is feeling as low as a man can get: held up, robbed and fired from his job as Doubtful, Wyoming's sheriff -- then someone murders his horse. And it's all happening just as a flashy, fleshy stage company comes to town. Some folks demand that the show be shut down, some sure enjoy it. But when a man is stabbed to death and a bank safe gets blown up, Cotton realizes a dastardly plot is taking over Doubtful. Badge or no badge, he's going to war.
