EVEN WHEN HE WAS CLEARED OF MURDER SOMEONE HAD HIM MARKED FOR EXECUTION!
“An entertaining western with a romantic undercurrent.” —Goodreads
Roy Harmon was moseyin' along into Cutler to get some makin's and a little salt. When he got to town, all the menfolk were gathered to greet him—with their revolvers pulled out for a gunsmoke welcome.
Then the sheriff poked his six-shooter into Roy’s belly and frog-marched him to the calaboose. It seemed Roy just exactly fit the description of a wanted killer-robber, and the entire town was fixing a noose with his name on it.
When Roy met the man who had actually seen the killer, the man said they looked alike but Roy wasn’t the person they were looking for. Roy was released immediately, but grudgingly. Now the sheriff had to start his search for someone to fit the noose all over again.
But by then it was too late to for Roy to leave town. Someone still wanted him dead and kept trying to punch his ticket to Boothill.. Maybe he'd never lived in Cutler, but sure as shootin' it looked like he was fixed to die there! But if he did, he planned to take a few miscreants with him.
