A novel by

 
 
Philip 'Handsome Phil' Foote had been arrested for raping and murdering a girl. Aware of how strong a case could be made against him, he hired the most dishonest attorney in Texas to act on his behalf - Reece Mervyn. Bring completely without scruple and possessing a thorough knowledge of the law, Mervyn had never hesitated to put its weakness to his advantage. Even when he knew his client was guilty, as in Foote's case, he was willing to employ any means to bring about an acquittal - providing the price was right.
Mervyn successfully paid off the key witnesses for the prosecution - and Foote was acquitted. But neither of them would have been so complacent had they realized that their success had brought them to the attention of the Texas Rangers' newly formed Company Z ...

J. T. Edson was a former British Army dog-handler who wrote more than 130 Western novels, accounting for some 27 million sales in paperback. Edson's works - produced on a word processor in an Edwardian semi at Melton Mowbray - contain clear, crisp action in the traditions of B-movies and Western television series. What they lack in psychological depth is made up for by at least twelve good fights per volume. Each portrays a vivid, idealized "West That Never Was", at a pace that rarely slackens.
