John Shefford studied for the ministry in Beaumont, Illinois, but traveled west to the Utah-­Arizona border where the red desert valley between the jagged line of black mesa and yellow range included a wild canyon that held a troubling secret. Shefford's fiance, Fay Larkin, was imprisoned in this undiscovered canyon with two others who had fled harassment from the Mormons. The mystery of this place was hidden in an unnamed village of "sealed" wives. The road to the village was blocked by a formidable crew of murderous half-­breeds whose punishment for trespassing was death. Shefford learned of this place from Venters, a man he knew in Beaumont, who had lived in that beautiful hidden valley whose location was unknown and the entrance to it closed forever when a rock balanced above the entry was sent crashing down purposely, calamitously loosening the precarious walls underneath. Now Shefford's dangerous attempt to rescue Fay is no easy accomplishment for someone who knew his efforts . . .

The Last Trail, the final entry in Grey's Ohio River Trilogy, expertly combines elements of romance and adventure in a gripping tale that pits protagonist Jonathan Zane against several nefarious rivals.
