A NIGHT FOR SCREAMING: Mitch Walker is on the run. Just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but his pursuer, Fred Palmer, has some very effective ways of getting a confession. So Walker hops a train and ends up in a small town in Kansas, where he hires on at a huge farm owned by Barton M. Cassel. It looks like a good place to hide out from Palmer and the local cops, but Walker soon finds himself torn between the scheming arrogance of his new employer, and the unsubtle advances of Cassel's willing wife, Eve. Caught between their jealous battle, Walker quickly discovers that he was better off when he was on the run--because one way or the other, nobody leaves the farm. ANY WOMAN HE WANTED: Mike Ballard works homicide, busted down from lieutenant four years ago for accepting bribes. He had ripped things wide open then, turning on the fat cats whom he had been protecting. But nothing had really changed. Guys were still working the rackets, and shop owners were still getting killed if they didn't pay. DA Tom Flynn tries to enlist Ballard in his own fight against corruption--and dies mysteriously in a car accident the next day. And then there's Lupe, pregnant by the son of one of the most influential men in town, who wants Ballard's help and isn't shy about how she goes about asking. And Naomi, who knows just what she wants. There's only so much a man can take. When they push him too far, Ballard only has one recourse--cop or not, he comes out swinging.
