Just Beyond the Law
By: Richie Brotherton
In the small Old West town of Showdown, up in the Texas panhandle, trouble is brewing. Rustlers and ne'er-do-wells seem to find their way into the wholesome little town, bothering its citizens and taking what they want with the iron on their hip. One day, a mysterious stranger appears in the shadows and begins to take care of the town's problems. No one knows the identity of this hero. But as the bodies of gunslingers pile up and the Sheriff becomes mighty suspicious, the people of the town are inspired by the stranger: If one man can make a difference, a town working together and helping one another can surely change their corner of the world.
