Dead Man's Ranch
In this western in Ralph Compton's USA Today bestselling series, a man must fight to the death for what's his...
For years Rory Middleton waited for his long-lost son, Brian, to return to Turnbull, New Mexico, and run the family’s Dancing M Ranch with his old man. By the time Brian Middleton returns, his father is buried on the ranch. Although he’s named as the rightful heir to the cattle spread in his father’s will, Brian’s about to find out it’s not that simple.
Brandon MacMawe, Rory’s other son by his common-law Mexican wife, wants the ranch for himself—as does the county’s wealthiest rancher, Wilf Dagneult. Brian’s got both hands full fending off these men when a wild card rides into town—a no-account con man and killer named Mortimer Dauro, who has ideas of his own for the dead man’s ranch…
