A novel by

 
 
Big Jim's men had gunned down O'Brien and shot Buchanan in the back ...
Buchanan lay on the floor, bracing himself on one elbow. He heard Big Jim say, "No, don't kill him. Get his gun. Fire another shot into O'Brien. We want Buchanan hanged."
But Buchanan had no intention of hanging. Somehow and in some way, he promised himself. Big Jim and his gang would pay for their crime.
He was determined that when his case came up before the 'twelve good men and true' of the jury, his name would be cleared before the world. And it would be Big Jim who would go to the gallows.

William Robert Cox (1901-1988) was a writer for more than sixty years, and published more than seventy-five novels and perhaps one thousand short stories, as well as more than 150 TV shows and several movies on film. He was well into his career, flooding the market with sports, crime, and adventure stories, when he turned to the western novel. He served twice as president of the Western Writers of America, and was writing his fifth Cemetery Jones novel, Cemetery Jones and the Tombstone War, when he passed away. He wrote under at least six pen names, including Willard d'Arcy, Mike Frederic, John Parkhill, Joel Reeve, Roger G. Spellman and, of course, Jonas Ward. Under the Ward byline, he wrote sixteen adventures in the Buchanan series, all of which will be published in ebook by Piccadilly Publishing.
