ramed by a crooked sheriff, Billy Ray Cabot has a date with the gallows in Cloverdale, Nevada. Fortunately, Billy Ray counts Smoke Jensen among his longtime friends so there's a good chance the young man won't feel the hangman's noose around his neck.
f course, Smoke rides to the rescue and gets Billy Ray out of jail but that just leads to more trouble. Before you can say
, the two men are embroiled in a violent conflict between clever railroad bandits and the organization Billy once worked for, which was hired to stop train holdups.
o matter which way they turn, Billy Ray and Smoke encounter folks who don't wish them well. There's only one way to deal with this thorny dilemma. If they are going to prove the convicted man's innocence, the two men have to go on the offense and confront the bad guys head on. Never one to shy away from a fight, Smoke is more than ready to face up and let his six-guns do the talking.
f you hanker for a good ole' fashion cowboy yarn, look no further. William W. Stone is a master at spinning riveting westerns filled with nasty desperados, brave, quick-draw heroes and hard-fisted action. When you saddle up with Stone you know you're in for a wild ride featuring plenty of gunplay.
