Death Waits at Sundown (Stories from the Golden Age) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lynn Taylor and his kid brother Frank may not be angels, but they’re not devils, either.  They’re just a couple of men—two-fisted Texans who have landed on the wrong side of a corrupt lawman.  And like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, they’re up to their necks in trouble.

Young Frank’s been framed for robbery, rustling and murder, and if Lynn doesn’t think fast, his brother’s going to end up the guest of dishonor at a hanging party.  Lynn cooks up a daring plan to clear his brother’s name and rope in the real outlaw.

But it means Lynn will have to turn outlaw himself, and if he’s caught, it’ll be his neck on the line—and in the noose.

Hailing from the western states of Nebraska, Oklahoma and Montana, Hubbard grew up surrounded by grizzled frontiersmen and leather-tough cowboys. When he chose to write stories of the Old West, Hubbard didn’t have to go far to do his research, drawing on his own memories of a youth steeped in the life and legends of the American frontier.

Also includes the Western adventures, Ride ’Em Cowboy, the story of a man and woman’s rodeo rivalry that leads to romance, and Boss of the Lazy B, in which a lady gets swindled—and the swindler ultimately gets justice.

 “A great bit of escapist fiction. . . . Lots of fun in a small package.” —DWD’s Reviews

*International Book Awards Finalist for best Western fiction 2012

Synopsis:

Lynn Taylor is a hard-riding, two-fisted Texan who isn’t interested in depriving the town of Pioneer of its necktie party—he just wants to save his wrongly accused brother and substitute another victim.

Synopsis:

Saddle up for a riveting tale from the wild, wild west.  When Lynn Taylor's kid brother, Lee, gets framed for stage robbery, cattle rustling and murder, the boy swears his innocence and instead accuses McCloud, head of the vigilante committee responsible for removing the town's former sheriff.

To save Lee from hanging the following night, Lynn hatches a wild plan to rob the next stagecoach with the help of the ex-sheriff—hoping it will raise doubts about Lee's guilt if the crimes continue. But Lynn gets more than he bargained for when he's snared by McCloud's men, and the time to the hanging gallops rapidly his way.  ALSO INCLUDES THE WESTERN STORIES "RIDE 'EM COWBOY" AND "THE BOSS OF THE LAZY B"

"So, do yourself a favor and punch some dogies or just get this super awesome audiobook." —Gil Wilson

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
