Frank Angel had walked right into a whipsawing, in spite of all his Justice Department training. But he just couldn’t sit in the Silver King and watch while the town marshal cold-cocked a defenseless kid.
So Angel shot the gun out of the marshal’s hand.
And as a result, he had to face the wildest, hottest gun battle of his career … an exploding, firebombed jail … in a town that had been run too long by greed and ruled by terror … a town where law and order were ridiculed, and justice was just a rumor.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Frederick Nolan, a.k.a. ‘Frederick H. Christian’, was born in Liverpool, England and was educated there and at Aberaeron in Wales. He decided early in life to become a writer, but it was some thirty years before he got around to achieving his ambition. His first book was The Life and Death of John Henry Tunstall, and along the way he became an authority on the history of the American frontier, founder of The English Westerners' Society, and something of a connoisseur of western fiction in the days when it was a flourishing literary genre.
In addition to the Angel westerns, Fred also wrote five entries in the popular ‘Sudden’ series started by Oliver Strange. Among his numerous books is the best-selling The Oshawa Project (published as The Algonquin Project in the US) which was later filmed by MGM as Brass Target, starring Sophia Loren, John Cassavetes, Max von Sydow, George Kennedy, and Robert Vaughn.
