The Betrayed (A Pecos Quinn Western 1) by John Rose Putnam
A powerful new series by John Rose Putnam begins with Civil War veteran Pecos Quinn riding north hoping to find his old commander, Colonel Carter Brantley. As the war ended five years earlier, he’d arrived home with his unit chased by Yankee cavalry to find his ranch attacked by Comanche, his home burned, his wife scalped and raped. Then someone shot him in the head.
He was left for dead when the rest of the Thirty-ninth Texas fled, but remarkably he survived. After he healed, the broken memories of that day faded in and out of his mind, haunting him. He was alone, lost, confused. He went to work scouting Comanche for his old enemy, the Yankee horse soldiers, and drank way too much. But the savagery of the Indian wars sobered him. It was time to learn the truth. What really happened that fateful day along the Pecos River?
