Sheriff on the Spot

(1943)
(A book in the Powder Valley Western series)
A novel by

 
Hours before his retirement, Powder Valley's chief lawman stumbles upon a deadly scheme

Pat Stevens never wanted to be sheriff. But when old Ed Grimes was killed, Pat was the only man in Powder Valley with a quick enough gun hand to avenge his predecessor's death and take on the badge. Now, after years of wearing the silver star, Pat is too old to continue to risk his neck. He only has a few hours before a new sheriff takes over - but a lot of blood can flow in a short amount of time.

A well-dressed con artist steps off the stagecoach into the sheriff's office. Mistaking Pat for the replacement officer, he hints at an evil bargain between sheriff and thief - a scheme of murderous corruption that could destroy Pat's closest friend. Pat has just a few hours to stop the killers, and he'll do it with or without his badge.
