Synopses & Reviews
Beecham had planned to control the territory and its rich gold deposits around Prescott, Arizona. He had been stopped dead in his tracks by the relatively unknown young man from Texas named Haddok. Haddok had given him such a beating that Beecham shuddered in fear of ever seeing him again. But Haddok stood between him and his plans. Haddok had to die. But how? The answer came in the form of a large price on Haddok's head payable to whoever killed him. Beecham had no guts, but plenty of money and there were people who would kill for it. Filipe Mendoza, the leader of a gang of outlaws along the Mexican border, jumped at the offer. Reubin Partlow, a sulking back shooter known as the Executioner, couldn?t get there fast enough. And Raven Stull, a strikingly beautiful saloon girl, saw it as her chance of a lifetime. They, along with others, learned that killing somebody for money was not all they thought it would be. They overlooked the simple fact that Bud Haddok would require a mite more killing than most folks. TOM WHATLEY is a minister, a former Infantry Officer with the U.S. Army, and an avid outdoorsman.
