Overview

For a gambler caught in a land war, the stakes are life and death in this Ralph Compton western.

A plague of brutal killings has descended on the town of Green Meadow, Oklahoma. At the scene of every grisly murder, a threatening message reads simply: GET OUT.
 
A mysterious villain known only as the Fat Man is causing a ton of trouble. He wants the town—or rather the black gold flowing beneath it—and he’s willing to wipe out every man, woman, and child to get it.
 
Only two men stand in his way—seedy gambler Chauncey Drake and scrappy Pinkerton agent Reuben Withers. Against all odds, these underdogs will need to force-feed the Fat Man a steady diet of hot lead—or Green Meadow will flow red before it flows black…

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.
