Overview

There's a thin line between the law and the lawless in this Ralph Compton western...

Newspaper reporter Lester T. Booker traveled to Santa Fe to interview legendary gunfighter and dime novel hero Ransom March. But the quick-drawing “Prince of the Plains” Booker meets turns out to be little more than an old ex-lawman of questionable moral fiber who doled out death to unsuspecting—and sometimes unarmed—outlaws.
 
One outlaw who escaped Rance’s brand of justice is the man known as The Gravedigger, who earned his moniker for burying his victims alive. Now, the unrepentant murderer has resurfaced, compelling Rance to come out of retirement and put his old enemy six feet under once and for all.
 
For Booker, it’s the story of a lifetime—and an education in learning just how the west was really won…

Ralph Compton stood six-foot-eight without his boots. He worked as a musician, a radio announcer, a songwriter, and a newspaper columnist. His first novel, The Goodnight Trail, was a finalist for the Western Writers of America Medicine Pipe Bearer Award for best debut novel. He was also the author of the Sundown Rider series and the Border Empire series.

As a little boy growing up in a small fishing village in Scotland, Joseph West enjoyed many happy Saturday mornings at the local cinema in the company of Roy and Gene and Hoppy. His lifelong ambition was to become a cowboy, but he was sidetracked by a career in law enforcement and journalism. He now resides with his wife and daughter in Palm Beach, Florida, where he enjoys horse riding, cowboy action shooting, and studying Western history.
