Jim-Bob’s first real assignment is no piece of cake. He must escort a ruthless outlaw into the hands of justice. All seems well with the lawless killer firmly in Jim-Bob’s custody. But nothing prepares him for an angry mob determined to take the law into their own hands and provide their own brand of justice: a hangman’s noose.
