He had led the posse for miles through the desert, but now Matt Keelock was growing desperate. He was worried about Kristina. His trip to the town of Freedom for supplies had ended in a shootout. If caught he would hang. Even though Kris could handle a horse and rifle as well as most men, the possibility of Oskar Neerland's finding her made Matt's blood run cold. He knew the violent and obsessive Neerland, publicly embarrassed when Matt had stepped in and stolen Kris away, would try to kill them both if given half a chance.
Matt tried to convince himself that Neerland had returned to the East. But Matt was wrong. Miles away in the town of Freedom, Oskar Neerland was accepting a new job. In his first duty as marshal, he would lead the posse that was tracking down Matt Keelock.

Captivating Good Read
Although the plot was very familiar it had a few twists to it that kept you interested...
The hero - Matt Keelock was my favorite -
It is difficult in Louis L'Amour's books to side with anyone but the main character - in this case Matt Keelock.
Like all of his writings Louis L'Amour does a great job of describing the wild west - I'm a horse rancher in Canada's desert country and enjoy the realism of his characters and their surroundings.
