Over the years, rancher Luke Lilavelt built his Window Sash brand from a podunk operation into a full-fledged cattle empire. But he didn’t do it through hard work. He added to his holdings through bloody methods only marginally within the law. And most of those methods were carried out by Dave Wall, Lilavelt’s troubleshooter. The work hurt Wall’s reputation considerably. But Wall knew it wouldn’t hurt as much as Lilavelt revealing the secrets he’s holding about his brother-in-law’s checkered past. So Wall keeps doing the miserly coward’s dirty work. But when he’s finally had enough and refuses to be Lilavelt’s strongarm any longer, Lilavelt makes good on his threat to reveal the secrets, forcing Wall to find a way to stop Lilavelt’s plans, or see his brother-in-law end up in prison—or worse.

Author Bio: L. P. Holmes

L. P. Holmes (1895–1988), also known as Matt Stuart, was the author of several outstanding Western novels, including Somewhere They Die, for which he received the Spur Award from the Western Writers of America.

Born in a log cabin in the heart of the Rockies near Breckenridge, Colorado, Holmes moved with his family when very young to Northern California. It was there that his father and older brothers built the ranch house where he grew up and where, in later life, he would live again. Holmes published his first story, “The Passing of the Ghost,” in Action Stories in 1925. He was paid half a cent per word and received a check for forty dollars. He went on to contribute nearly six hundred stories of varying lengths to the magazine market as well as to write numerous Western novels.

In Holmes’ stories one finds the themes so basic to his Western fiction: the loyalty that unites one man to another, the pride one must take in his work and a job well done, the innate generosity of most who populate his communities, and the vital relationship between a man and a woman in making a better life.
