and nearly forgotten after its original owner died in
prison. For the dying man, the money is a legacy to ensure
his preteen daughter’s future. For Van, the gold is cash

The grandson of a career criminal who taught him all the
tricks of his trade, Van suspects that nothing is ever

To discover who has them in the cross hairs, Shaw must
seek out the hunters’ real prey. His quest leads him from

For years, Van Shaw has tried to live every day above

his gift . . . and in his blood. If he survives the coming
storm, he’ll have to decide what he wants—and whether he
can live as an outlaw without sacrificing his honor.
