A Cold Hard Trail
"The devil's on my tail, and he's wearing a badge. Arrested for a robbery I didn't commit, I broke out of jail and took it on the 1 a.m. I had no choice. No sheriff's going to believe I have a double-unless I find the outlaw myself. If I live that long."
The Fosterville sheriff's bagged a few outlaws. The trouble is, Kid Parmlee, his buddy Zeb, and his Pa are dead ringers for bandits who took a stagecoach and made off with a fortune in gold. First step for the Kid and his partners is to make a fast getaway before they get hanged. On the run, and trapped between a trigger-happy lawman and a trio of hard-core desperadoes, the Kid finds himself outnumbered and outgunned. All he has now is raw nerve and blind rage to clear his name and escape the cruel plains alive.
In Kid Parmlee, Spur Award-winning author Robert Conley has crafted a fearless flesh-and-blood adventurer who lives and breathes the West as it really was.
