With a new introduction by Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series.

Ex-cop Mitch Walker is on the run after being wrongfully accused of murder. So Walker hops a train and ends up in a small town in Kansas, where he signs up to work at a huge farm owned by Barton M. Cassel, the big man in the county.
