Revenge on the Mogollon Rim: A Peter Ott Westernby Taylor Jones
Young Peter Ott gets entangled with a rancher's wife and is forced to leave home. He becomes a deputy in Durango, only to be shot during a gunfight. He learns the rudiments of becoming a fast gun from a gunman whose future death he is sworn to avenge. As a deputy in Globe, an Eastern manufacturer pays Ott to avenge the death of his son who was hung along with two other cowboys by vigilantes on the Mogollon Rim. Ott learns who killed the cowboys, but cannot bring them to justice, but he reports most outlaw deaths to the manufacturer as Rim assassins. For each, he gets paid. Also, Bull Davis, who owns mining and agricultural interest, pays Ott to avenge the death of one of his ranch foremen. Ott arrests a man named Champion for the bushwhacking of Bull's ranch foreman. Ott tries every strategy to egg Champion into a gunfight, but Champion is too clever until Ott tricks him in Globe. The final revenge is acted out on the Mogollon Rim.
