Publisher's Summary

The gallows are going up in Canyon Gap and wild-spirited Leo Carver is going to swing. A known troublemaker without an alibi, Leo certainly had motives for holding up the stage and killing two men, yet he still proclaims his innocence.

There's a lot of folks who want to believe him, because although Leo Carver is a hard-living, free-spending maverick, he is the kind of man the West needs.

But as an angry mob forms outside the jail demanding a hanging, a beautiful woman is asking questions - the kind that could uncover a smoking shotgun - and a twisted motive for murder.

Lacks Substance!

Was the evidence against the star player sufficient to convict or acquit him for robbery and murder? The "good ole boy" admitted to holding up stages and rustling a few cows to have money to spend on a good time.

Not one of L'Amours better short stories.

Good short story.

loved it. Good short story, but felt the ending was not quite complete. still the ending was about the typical hero riding off into the sunset. Not a Superman, zoro, etc., but a regular man who one out in the end.
