Sierra Marshal

A novel by

Sometimes you have to take the law into your own hands...

Cal Marsden, owner of the biggest spread in the territory, knew that Victor Gantry, his nearest neighbour, was a wanted man.

He sent for Steve Enders, a federal marshal, to come into the town of Anderson and arrest Gantry on a charge of murder and armed robbery.

On the face of things, Marsden's actions showed a proper regard for law and order, but when Enders fell victim to a violent hold-up on his journey into Anderson, his suspicions were raised.

After questioning the local sheriff and Victor Gantry himself, it was soon apparent that Marsden had other reasons for wanting to see Gantry behind bars.

Discovering that Enders not only refused to arrest Gantry without further evidence, but also that the marshal was showing an unhealthy interest in his own activities, Marsden aimed to frame the lawman himself.

With his henchmen at his command, a drunken saloon brawl escalated into a murder charge with Enders caught in the middle.

But Enders was no stranger to this kind of challenge and Marsden soon discovered that he had caught a wildcat by the tail, for the lawman knew a few tricks himself which finally forced a bloody showdown...
