The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

In the booming mining town of Doubtful, Wyoming, Cotton Pickens is the law. And in William W. and J.A. Johnstone's rollicking new Western, the law is in a fight for its life. . .

Making Of A Massacre

Cotton Pickens is feeling about as low as a man can get. Held up, robbed and fired from his job as sheriff, things get even worse when someone murders Cotton's horse Critter. And it's all happening just as a flashy, fleshy stage company comes to town.

Some folks demand the show be shut down for immorality. Some folks--Cotton included--sure enjoy the proceedings. But when a man gets stabbed to death, a bank safe gets blown up, and another county's sheriff starts imposing his will, Cotton realizes that a dastardly plot is taking over Doubtful. Badge or no badge, Cotton is going to war. To catch a killer. To stand up to some self-righteous fatheads. And for the right to see a little bare-naked leg--or die trying. . .
