Snake River Slaughter by W.W. and W.E. Johnstone has mountain man Matt Jensen riding to help a childhood friend.
The beautiful and spunky Kitty Wellington has inherited a 20,000-acre ranch with a stampeding mortgage. To cancel this and make a profit, she wants to sell 500 thoroughbreds to the U.S. Army. But someone else wants the ranch and has hired 20 killers, posing as Idaho peace officers, to dry-gulch and rustle Kitty out of business. Jensen may be one of the best pistol fighters alive, but any gambling house boss will lay Jensen’s chances at wiping the unknown’s slate clean at 10 to one.
