(From the publisher):
Ben Whitlow has been tried by the circuit court and convicted of robbing the Union Pacific Railroad and killing two guards. His sentence: death by hanging. It's a routine job for a professional hangman, and Zack Tree rides into Red Bluff, Wyoming to do his duty.
As Tree prepares the scaffold he discovers evidence clearing Whitlow. Zack Tree is a hard man, dedicated to just punishment under the law, so he calls for a delay in the execution in order to reopen the case. But the folks in Red Bluff are dead set on a hanging, and Tree is replaced. Defying the local sheriff, he sets a dangerous trap to bring the real killer to justice before an innocent mans life ends at the gallows...
