I thought this book was really surprised that Zane was the one who got arrested. Even though his sister left his Colts on the sewing table, Zane couldn't blame her. As his sister tries to find out who shot General Judson, the Wild West Show has a risk of closing. The Taylor family has been with the Wild West Show since it began, and the guilt is leaning on another person now. This book has a lot of suspence and I liked it.
