(From the publisher):
Donovan's escape from jail - and the hanging to come - was foiled by Joe Vickers, who fired both barrels of his shotgun into the face of the vicious killer. The town of Dry Fork heaved a collective sigh of relief, happy to be rid of one of the worst outlaws ever to plague the arid plains of the Texas Border country.
Years later, Vickers is found dead - shot in the face by a double-barreled shotgun. And others who were involved in Donovan's capture and trial are receiving death threats. It seems as if Donovan has returned, eager for vengeance.
The killer's trail leads Sheriff Webb Matlock into the wilds of the Mexican territory. Dead man walking or not, justice must be served - and Matlock is just the man to do it.
