It was 1858. New Orleans-born Second Lieutenant Jean Benoit is finally getting used to his post in Fort Laramie, Wyoming. Then comes the sudden order, direct from the Secretary of War. He is being promoted to captain and transferred to Fort Marcy in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Benoit is not happy about the promotion and the transfer -- especially when he finds himself in the middle of a turf war between the Archdiocese of New Mexico led by the Frenchman, Bishop Lamy, and a coven of corrupt priests and their allies. When one of Lamy's priests is murdered, Benoit finds himself in an impossible situation: Trying to sort out guilt and innocence at a time and place where the truth is anybody's guess and the spoils of the future have the names of millions written in the desert wind.
About: The fifth title in the People of the Plains saga, set before the American Civil War, sends newly promoted Captain Jean Benoit into the middle of a turf war between a New Mexico bishop and a group of corrupt priests.
