A gunman wants to hang up his Colts in this fast-paced installment of Ralph Compton’s Sundown Riders series. Luke Lessing was told his career at the Pinkerton Agency was assured, thanks to his skill with pistol and rifle. But when his partner was ambushed, Luke was widely blamed. Discouraged with Pinkerton politics, he moved on to a job as sheriff in “sleepy” little Lovejoy, Colorado–only to barely escape with his life. So he happily trades wearing a badge for baking biscuits as cook at the Comstock House in Virginia City. He’s put his past behind him—until violent conflict breaks out between mine workers, mine owners, and those who would extort and bully them both. After the sheriff is bushwhacked, Luke is pressured to pin on the badge yet again. What does a fella have to do to be left in peace? More than eight million Ralph Compton books in print!
