A man of honor becomes an outlaw in this Ralph Compton western...

Solomon Brakefield tried to play by the rules—and lost. When the mine Sol worked for was robbed, he went after the robbers himself. After he brought the money back, he was given no more than a handshake and a few dollars. Seemed the straight life just didn’t pay.
So Sol seeks out Nester Quarles, known killer and train robber, to teach him the tricks of the outlaw’s trade. The old outlaw has plenty to teach the new outlaw, but there’s a price to be paid—and the currency is Sol’s soul.
