The first thing of interest Cray Dawson saw upon riding into Crabtown, Montana, on his way to stake his claim in Black’s Cut, was a sign outside the barber shop, with a long line of miners, townsfolk, business people and saddle tramps strung along the boardwalk waiting their turn to view Lawrence Shaw in his coffin.

“This is one of the best books I’ve read by Ralph cotton”
Five Star Review on Amazon by Chris Beck
This is one of the best books I’ve read by Ralph cotton. As some of the other reviewers have pointed out, Fast Larry Shaw doesn’t appear until well into to the book. The one character that I liked is Madden Peru, a young outlaw who claims to be the person who shot Shaw. Eventually, Peru redeems himself and becomes Acting Deputy along with Sheriff Caldwell (a character from previous Shaw/Dawson series of books). By the end of the book, he is a sympathetic character. All in all, a great read for Ralph Cotton fans.
