In the early 1900s, the Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency played a brutal and bloody role in the union strikes and violence that took place in both Matewan, West Virginia, and Ludlow, Colorado. As ruthless as they were effective, the Baldwin-Felts' detectives were loved by the mine owners, but universally feared and hated by the coal miners and their families. On August 1, 1921, when agents of Baldwin-Felts murdered an unarmed Sid Hatfield on the courthouse steps in Welch, West Virginia, they had no way of knowing that the constable's illegitimate son was also among those in the crowd. Two years later, young Billy Hatfield begins seeking revenge upon the agents who murdered his father. Desperate to capture him, Baldwin-Felts calls in their most dependable troubleshooter, Morgan Cobb, who was born and raised in the town of Matewan. The son of Sheriff Sid Hatfield enters into a life-and-death struggle with Morgan Cobb, an agent of Baldwin-Felts. So begins the gripping, historical novel... Return to Matewan.
