THE JOSHUA TRAIL, the second book in The Joshua Trail Series, begins where SIX NOTCH ROAD left off. Eli Lynne is determined to end his quest for the elusive Jules Joshua despite risking the loss of his wife’s love and the good life. With only rumors , tall tales and a string of back shot dead men to guide him, Eli heads to Mexico to see Jules dead and cut the last notch into his gun handle. Meanwhile, Stella begins plotting her revenge for being scorned. She knows she can hire a man to be killed for a bottle of good whiskey.

Stella had never known what is was like to be a child …” ” … Jules did not take his eyes off of Maria for a second. He took his new Colt from his belt and lay it on the table in front of him. He pondered where he would place the shots that he would use to kill Juan and have her all to himself. A kill shot was to be last, after bullets tore flesh and broke bone to cries of agony. He shivered with pleasure as he thought of how he would take Maria without the slightest smile of consent.
