Hamlyn Merlin 1968:
Yakima City slumbered under the high sun. The townspeople had left the high street to droning flies.
But then a six-gun echoed outside the bank, and a man fell dying. Three killers made their
getaway and soon the high street was deserted no more.
Only two people had seen the face of the leading man - Paddy the dentist, and Pocomoto. Paddy said the killer was Lester Kellaway. Pocomoto knew he was lying, but soon the sheriff's posse was on Kellaway's trail. What was Paddy's game, wondered Pocomoto - and would he be able to reach the accused man before the Law's rough justice did ?
