The Stranger From Abilene
In this Ralph Compton western, a man has two targets: the one he’s looking for and the one on his back...
Bighorn Point appears to be a quiet town. But when a stranger comes looking for a murderer, it turns out that not all the respectable citizens are what they seem.
Down-on-his-luck rancher Micajah “Cage” Clayton has been hired to track down and kill Lissome Terry—a man who years ago left a path of death, rape, and robbery in his wake. Though he doesn’t know what Terry looks like, Clayton knows his target is in Bighorn Point living under an assumed name, so finding him shouldn’t be too hard.
But when Marshall Will Durant only gives Clayton a week to find his man in a town where everyone knows his deadly purpose, catching the crafty outlaw will be anything but easy…
