"Irish immigrant brothers Michael and Thomas O'Driscoll have returned from the brutal front lines of the Civil War. Unable to adapt to life as farm laborers, they reenlist in the army and are thrown into ferocious combat with Red Cloud's coalition of Indian tribes in the heart of Montana's Powder River Valley. Thomas finds love amidst the daily carnage--which leads to a moment of violence that will change the brothers' lives forever. Meanwhile, following a double murder in an illicit brothel, Lieutenant Martin Molloy sets off to track down the killers. As he journeys to a remote outpost, he meets Irish nationalist rebels and anti-immigrant nativists who prove to be violently opposed to his investigations."--

This western detective novel threads together three basic themes: the impact of the civil war on the combatants, integration of Irish immigrants into American society, and the American drive to for unfettered access to the west. A lieutenant, sergeant, and private are given orders to find and apprehend a murderer of the civilian owner and operators of a tavern, brothel, and goods store just outside Ft Phil Kearny in northeastern Wyoming. This is a well told story with chapters alternating between the protagonist in the present, and the antagonist in the past. This device is effective in building up the tension to the end where present and past threads meet.
