The Gallows at Graneros

Front Cover
Center Point Pub., 2005 - Fiction - 191 pages
Who strung up Billy Pinto? That was the question facing Sheriff Thorpe Stedman when he found Billy's body hanging from the gallows. Somebody had strung up the simple-minded Apache who had never caused anyone a bit of harm. In the small frontier town of Graneros, the identities of the hangmen wouldn't be a secret for long, and one by one, the guilty betrayed themselves. Would the now peaceful Apaches go on the warpath to avenge their murdered brother? One thing was sure: if the killers weren't brought to justice, there would be hell to pay.
