Two men try to escape a town of terror in this western in Ralph Compton's USA Today bestselling series.
The bustling town of Rawhide Flat is bursting at the seams with hard men and their hard-earned cash from working the nearby Comstock Lode. So when the bank is robbed and two civilians cut down, a posse delivers its own justice—leaving only Judah Walsh alive.
Walsh knows the only hand he can play is to tell where his gang hid the money. In return, he wants a horse, a hundred bucks—and a free ride out of the state. But the people of Rawhide Flat would rather torture the information out of him.
Lucky for Walsh, protection arrives in a hail of bullets from U.S. Deputy Marshal Augustus Crane, who has come to bring Walsh into federal custody. But Crane getting Walsh out of jail is one thing—getting out of town alive is another…
