Charlie Mac’s first published book captures the spirit of the Old West where honor trumped honesty and a man did the right thing without being told what the right thing was. Outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid have turned a new leaf since returning from South America. Their train robbing days are behind them. Life is settled and good. When a journal surfaces that links railroad baron E. H. Harriman to the assassination of President Lincoln, all the power of the Union Pacific Railroad is turned on Butch and Sundance with a vengeance. The stakes are high. For Butch and Sundance their very lives are at risk. For the Union Pacific, corporate survival is on the line, and no measure is too extreme to prevent the journal becoming public. The resulting scandal could destroy the Union Pacific, other companies and financiers, and perhaps even the economic health of the nation. The action moves across the country from 1911 New York City, to the mountain town of Crested Butte, Colorado, with colorful characters every stop of the way.

Charlie Mac began writing as a second, or perhaps, third career. His first careers were as a marketing executive and entrepreneur. Charlie is a native Californian who now lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was inspired to write a novel to answer the question, what happened to Butch and Sundance after Bolivia. Charlie heard actor Paul Newman say in an interview that no one actually saw Butch and Sundance die in the film. That was inspiration enough for Charlie, long fascinated by the tale of the amiable outlaws.
