(From the publisher):
Stick with me—or HANG!
Frank Chess was soft—and crooked. The town of Rifle knew—and pitied him. The men of Saber knew—and despised him. Rhino Hust knew—and used him.
But there was something they didn't know.
Frank Chess was through with the gang, the dirty jobs, the rotten schemes, the cheating—through with Rhino Hulst...
and he was all through running away!
But it wasn't that easy. A frame-up—a murderous doublecross—and the final explosion of red, killing rage.
Luke Short's brawling bloody story of a drifter who turned hard—and made his stand!
