    "Dear Shorty, it saddens me to let you know Matt was killed and robbed of $11,000 and was buried today. April 19, 1881. Almost half of the stolen money was to pay off our ranch which the bank will foreclose on the first day of September. I know who killed my husband but the law cannot find him. It has been told he has family in Montana. I need your help if at all possible, or the children and I shall lose the ranch." Shorty told his partner Buffalo he may be gone for months, but will write when he can.

    A young mother's heart is most ripped from her body, as she holds her dying baby boy in her arms. Not three feet away lay her dead husband. She saw as two men saddled and stole Morris horses and a third gunned down two of the people she loved most. When the posse came looking for the men, US Marshal Shorty Thompson would not let her take up the trail after them. No, these men will know what real fear is as a mother's wrath slowly, and very painfully, destroys them.

    The 1870s: As opposed to the myths of popular culture, not everybody was swaggering around with six-irons strapped down and leading lives of mayhem. But there were the exceptions - every bit as evil, bloody, and deadly as legends portray. And so too was the law that handled these outlaws. In the mold of men like Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp, MD Shorty Thompson is just that kind of lawman: Short on stature but tall on guts. Hand-picked by President Rutherford B. Hayes, he is one of best.
