Overview

ROCKY MOUNTAIN
JUSTICE

Cole Weston owned all the land around Saddle Rock, Colorado, and figured his money made him the law of the land. To his way of think­ing, nesters and rustlers deserved the same fate-lynching from the nearest tree. The only man brave enough to stand up to Weston's brand of frontier justice was Deputy Price Regan. With no more backup than his shadow, Regan would fight for what he knew was right-even if it meant gunning down every last one of Weston's hired killers.
