In the lawless Wild West, few things kill you faster than becoming a hero.
Young Deputy Marshal Paul Zachary didn't aim for fame, but the papers have written him up and made him a legend. His stand for what's right -- regardless off the odds or consequences -- is reminding folks that justice is possible. And not just in Zachary's town of Belleville.
Unfortunately for Zachary, his fame proves a threat to a cruel cattle baron named McConnell. McConnell has bribed or buried every man who's ever stood up to him and he soon sets his sights on Paul Zachary, now known throughout the West as "Little Man."
McConnell forces Zachary to come after him and all his men. Now, the young lawman will attempt what even the Army couldn't pull off: cleaning out the lair of murderers and thieves who answer only to McConnell.
(Author's note: If you're looking for a typical Western, don't waste your money on this book. There are no cattle drives or beautiful sunsets. No slow scenes with formal manners and tender dames. This is the gritty West. A place where lawless land barons push the weak, and sworn law officers balance keeping the peace and staying alive. Blood flows early and often, and danger lies waiting around every corner. This is not a book for the faint of heart, or for those who want to imagine living out west before the land was tamed. Had you lived in these times and on these pages, you'd keep a gun by your side. Probably two. And you'd damn well better have known how to use them. This book -- as you can see -- contains mature language and moves fast. It's a hard, thrilling ride, so if you choose to saddle up, prepare to be thrown off a time or two.)
