The proud tradition of Ralph Compton’s epic Westerns carries on with the scintillating work of bestseller Joseph A. West. Blood on the Gallows features John McBride, a former New York City lawman who’s moved west to pursue a more peaceful existence. But easy living just isn’t in the cards. And when a town sheriff with a Texas-size chip on his shoulder decides to make trouble, McBride knows that one way or another, somebody’s headed for an early grave.
