A CHANGED MAN
For the past five years Clay Allison has been the most famous prisoner ever to hole up in Yuma Prison. On the day of his release, the most notorious holdup man west of the Mississippi enters the blazing heat of the day to begin another life. Toting a Remington Army revolver that displays thirteen notches for the lives he's taken, he hopes to hell he never has to use it to kill again. He's had plenty of time to think -- about a future filled with life instead of death.
Eager to make amends, Allison sets off to recover the stash of gold from his last Wells Fargo stage robbery and turn it in. But waiting close by is someone else with other plans for the gold -- and for Frank Allison.

After writing ten novels for The Judge series, HarperCollins wanted some stand-alone westerns, and this was the first of four, a traditional story about a man trying to turn over a new leaf, only to discover that the sins of the past continue to haunt him.
