Abstract:

"Trans-Pecos had been running into unexpected difficulties while trying to complete its line across the Drifting Sands country. Besides the ordinary hazards of laying track across that wild section of West Texas, it had had to contend with Slash Hanlon's outlaw gang. The last two payrolls had been held up, and the workers at Eagle Camp at the end of the tracks had quit work and were threatening to riot if they were not paid. So when Shad Jones arrived in Junction City to act as trouble-shooter, he found his work cut out for him. And matters were not helped by the distraction of a former sweetheart whom Shad still loved and the uneasy alliance with a sheriff who was honest but violent and uncontrolled"--Provided by publisher.
