Blue Thomas is a stranger in Denver. The bright lights and big city bustle are 250 miles and a world away from his family’s cattle ranch in Kansas, and he is out of his element. He came to find work and save the ranch from foreclosure, but on a rainy night a desperate woman finds him. Back home, he would never let anyone—especially a woman—face danger alone. Without fully understanding what he is in for, Blue pledges his help, whether she wants it or not.
As a trap closes around them, Mitzi must abandon her usual strategy of careful planning and situation management, instead relying on quick thinking and a bold, head-on approach that may just get her—and Blue—killed. Before the last bullet flies, Blue will find out just how far he is willing to go to live up to his old-school ideals of gallant chivalry. [close]

West Cork. November 1920. The Irish War of Independence rages. The body of a young woman is found brutally murderered on a windswept hillside, a scrapboard sign covering her body reads 'TRATOR' - traitor. Sergeant Séan O'Keefe is assigned to investigate, aided by sinister detectives sent from Dublin Castle to ensure that he finds the killer. Just so long as that killer isn't one of their own... On the other side of the divide, the IRA assign a young volunteer soldier to investigate the murder.
Unknown to each other the Sergeant and the Volunteer relentlessly pursue the truth behind the savage killing; their investigation taking them from the bullet-pocked lanes and thriving brothels of the city, to the rugged, deadly hills of West Cork. Both men must be careful in a time where 'murder's as common as rain and no one knows a thing about it, even when they do.' [close]
