Overview

In this Ralph Compton western, the Strange twins find themselves in double trouble...

Young Jed and Tim Strange lost their father to an outlaw's bullet, and now their mother has succumbed to a fatal illness. Unable to farm their land due to a lack of funds, the twins set out to find their sister—who left home to avenge their father's death over a year ago.

Farm life hasn't prepared the twins for the rough-and-tumble cow towns west of Missouri. And before they even begin their search, they're accused of a murder they didn't commit. Just barely escaping a posse's rope, the twins are on the run—wounded, hounded by the law, and desperately seeking the true killers...

Dialog is incredible... The hunt is on as the twins, and their sister track their father's killers. Quick paced, with surprises along each trail they take... I found myself cheering for the twins... As they stumbled from one troubled sitution to another, I cringed and hoped for the best... Well... Hate to ruin a good story for someone...

ive read the first book and just recently finished Shadow of a Noose (Shadow. This was better than the first book, and im afraid to read the third because i don't think the story could get much better. 'Shadow was so good i read it in a day and a half.
