Axle Bust Creek / John Shirley.


Former Union soldier Cleveland Trewe has seen more than enough carnage for one lifetime. Now that the war is over he's found work as a peacekeeper and prospector--the perfect set of survival skills for a town like Axle Bust, Nevada, a place seething with danger. Cleve's uncle staked a claim in Axle Bust only to lose it to a murderous con-man partnered with Duncan Conroy, owner of the Golden Fleece Mine. To reclaim his uncle's mine and bring justice to a town under tyranny, Cleve finds himself turning the streets into a battlefield. Conroy is about to learn there just isn't room for both men in a town like Axle Bust.
