A U.S. Marshal ends up in the last place he should be in this Ralph Compton western...

Deputy U.S. Marshal Matt Battles is being blackmailed—by President Chester A. Arthur. The Commander-in-Chief needs someone to discover why Hatfield J.

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.
