Reckoning at Rainrock, by Wayne D. Dundee
West central Nebraska, late 1880s: Harriet Munro, a fiery woman lawyer, takes the case of beautiful young Roxanne — a desperate fugitive fleeing a trumped-up murder conviction and a hangman's noose. Harriet calls upon Lone McGantry, former Indian scout and tracker, to deliver Roxanne to Rainrock, a town in the northwest corner of Nebraska near the fabled Toadstool Badlands, where she will face re-trial.
McGantry succeeds, however, town conspirators plot to divert justice. Before it is over, trusts are betrayed, bullets fly, lives are lost … until, within the stark, hauntingly empty badlands, scores are settled and a bloody reckoning is finally achieved.
