Overview

Having created a new life for himself after causing the death of his adopted father, Clint Bowles, one of the deadliest gunfighters in the west, is stunned to learn ten years later that his father might still be alive. To find the truth despite the chance that his true identity might be discovered, he journeys to the foothills of the Sangre d'Cristo Mountains of New Mexico Territory where he finds his father. The old man refuses his son's help. Angered, Clint pushes forward without aid from his father and finds himself involved in a convoluted and deadly confrontation with powerful carpetbaggers, supported by the local law, who are determined to take his father's hacienda and lands.

Publishers Weekly

Conwell's 25th western (after Atascocita Gold) is a fast-paced hayburner loaded with gunplay, powder smoke and a wagonload of perforated corpses. Cleve Bollinger is a wanted man now living straight as Clint Bowles. He and his saddle pal, Speck Adams, head to New Mexico after learning that an old friend, Sam Cooper, who Clint thought was dead, is alive and in trouble. On arrival at the small pueblo town of El Jardin, Clint and Speck side with Cooper in a vicious land war with land baron John Rawlings, his small army of hired guns and his paid-for sheriff and judge. Once the baddies realize Cooper has help and Clint's true identity is discovered, the lead starts to fly, and Clint's six-guns don't have time to cool off. The bad guys soak up most of the lead in this oater, and Conwell cleverly helps Clint ride off into the sunset in a satisfying, concluding plot twist. This may be pure western formula, but it sure is fun. (Aug.)
