Booklist Review

Matt McCloud, an outrider for the Two-Bar Ranch, not far from Denver, happens upon the identical twin brother he never knew he had. This revelation tosses him into turmoil, intensified by the fact that his brother, itinerant gambler Riley Wilcox, is under arrest for murder and soon to be hung. The mild-mannered Matt, whose deceased parents raised him quietly on a small ranch and never mentioned a twin, transforms himself into a man of action, helping Riley break out of jail. The brothers then embark on a search for the real killer and the truth regarding their past. Overholser, son of western writing master Wayne D. Overholser, mirrors his father's ability to create moving human drama in a western milieu. This is an intelligent, character-driven novel with a heart. --Wes Lukowsky
