Overview

The saga that began in Flint's Gift and Flint's Truth continues in a gripping new novel about Sam Flint, a dedicated frontier journalist whose only weapon is the truth.

Pulling into Silver City, Sam Flint knows he's made a big mistake. He's heard the city is two miles long and three yards wide, and that isn't far from the truth. Built high up in a tight valley, there isn't a foot of space to be bought or bartered, and what few rooms there are have already been triple-rented.

It is a fool's errand, but the journeyman editor and printer feels an honest journalist has to take on The Silver City Democrat, run by a corrupt editor. A friend of merchants and flatterer of politicians, the manipulative scoundrel grows fat ridiculing the miners, the sports, and the working girls, while making sure they are taxed into destitution.

Flint believes strongly that an honest journalist has to take on the lies of The Silver City Democrat, but how can he launch his own paper when the whole town is in his rival's pocket?
