In the Redhawk Mining District, he is known as Johnny Montana. It is the name given to him by those who followed him to the Northwest gold fields in the spring of 1863. Now, with a harsh Montana winter about to descend upon them, all Johnny and his partners want to do is go home. And all that stands in their way is a highly organized gang of thieves and murderers.
Others have tried to escape the Redhawk District with their summer's cache of gold, but none have succeeded. Now they are turning to one man, asking him to accomplish what heavily-armed parties have so far failed to achieve -- get their gold out of Montana, before the outlaws come for it. One man, one woman, $60,000 worth of gold -- against a horde of bloodthirsty killers. --michael-zimmer.com

John Owens, better known by his nickname of Johnny Montana, has a rough job in store for him. He and his partners have pulled nearly $50,000 in gold out of Redhawk Creek, and now they have to get it out of Montana, past Brett Cutter and his gang of cutthroats, who have been picking off prospectors and stealing their gold. Johnny’s plan is to take the gold out on a pack horse, find a way past Cutter and his nasties, and make his way to Salt Lake City. He doesn’t count on meeting up with another prospector, Allie Purcell, who desperately needs his help; and he certainly doesn’t count on one of his own partners selling them out to Cutter. Although the author doesn’t break any new ground here, this lean, efficient story of survival against overwhelming odds should appeal to most western fans. --David Pitt
