A Wolf in the Fold
In this Ralph Compton western, even the most cold-blooded killer can do what’s right…
When it comes to taking lives, Lucius Stark is just about the meanest mongrel of a man who ever aimed a gun in West Texas. For him, taking lives means making a living, and if the price is right he’ll do the job right. But even hardest of men has a soft spot…
When Stark grows too fond of a woman he is hired to kill in a range war, his client shows his displeasure by shooting him in the back. He is saved by the Butcher family—the very ranchers he was paid to eliminate. But when the Butchers end up slaughtered without mercy, Stark finds himself out to deliver his own brand of vengeance—free of charge.
