After leaving a trail of terror and death in his wake, the notorious "Missouri" Boone Jennings finally meets his match in San Francisco when US marshal Ambrose Shaw catches up to him. The story of his capture, and the marshal's bravery, has already become legend back east by the time Pinkerton inspector Ezra Johns gets off the train from New York City to testify in the murderer's trial.

When Ambrose is unable to give witness to the evils he's seen, Ezra becomes their lone hope for putting Jennings in a noose. But if Ezra thinks that's his biggest problem, he's got plenty to learn about life--and the afterlife--in the spirited West.

Fortunately, Ambrose is there to assist, and more than happy to oblige Ezra--in the courtroom or the bedroom. He spent his life bringing justice to the Wild West, and if he has a say in it, that's how he'll be spending his death too.

In this Abigail Roux creation we have lawmen, outlaws, hanging, shoutouts, all the elements of a great western and then of course we also have ghosts.  Oh and for Roux fans, we also have a great little surprise treat near the end of the story.  Knowing her work as I do and I never saw it coming, afterwards, I realized I should have had more of an inkling that it might happen, but I didn't and that made it all the more sweeter.  Ezra and Ambrose have an instant connection that goes beyond their common lawmen occupation and it's just fun to watch unfold. In Marshall Ambrose Shaw you have the quintessential old west lawman, in Inspector Ezra Johns, you have the apparent bookish Pinkerton agent and you really don't expect their commonalities to go beyond the badge but boy does it ever.  Throw in the evil ways of the outlaw Boone Jennings and you have the workings of a great western and of course love story doesn't go unnoticed.  A perfect addition to your bookcase.

Ambrose Shaw has been tracking the notorious serial killer “Missouri” Boone Jennings and he's ended up in a bar in San Francisco. All he wants is a light for his cigarillo and to finally stop the madman. Something goes wrong and Ambrose finds himself unable to leave the hotel. Coming out to help with the trial is Pinkerton detective Ezra Johns. He meets Ambrose and finds something very strange about him. They find themselves drawn to each other while going through the trial and Jennings's execution. That's when things really get interesting and both men have to find a way to stop a maniacal demon with the desire to kill, all while trying to figure out how to live with the situation they both find themselves in. I'm not usually into the wild west. Having grew up in Texas, I think I was overdosed as a kid. But I wanted to read something else by Abigail Roux, whose Cut & Run series is one of my top two favorites and I decided to give The Bone Orchard a try. I ended up reading the entire thing in one sitting and wishing for more. Ambrose is so much fun with his laid back humor and the way he just accepts things. Ezra Johns is an interesting character and he's almost a driving force for what goes on. Yes, there's some mile M/M sex, nothing explicit but very tender, and the violence is wild west style stuff. But the entire package, with the twists she builds into it is more than enough to make me want to know what's going on with these guys in the future. 5-stars and cheering
