Greedy men will do anything...

Jim Bradley, a special deputy attached to the Federal Marshal office in Wichita, is on his latest assignment.

Heading to Hanson in the county of Bonham, Bradley knows he's in for a long haul. Hanson is as corrupt as it gets. Sheriff Creed Smith and his deputy, Wiley Shadden use the law for their own gain.

They'll free anyone from thieves to cattle rustlers - as long as they get a handsome bribe in return. Everything else is given the blind eye.

And if that's not enough, it looks like the surrounding area is on the verge of a range war. In fact, it's the reason the federal marshal office was invited into the county in the first place.

An area of land has been put up for sale by the government - but for many years, the ranches nearby have used it for their cattle. All of them believe they have more right to the land than the other.

The big three though are Alex Lackey of the L6 ranch, Eph Egan of the Broken Arrow ranch and Pete Clanton of the Bar C ranch.

Each man reckons they can outsmart the other and if innocent blood gets in the way, so be it. And the first is Pit Grove.

Pit Grove was the man who had written to the federal marshal office in the first place. But since his Lazy G ranch borders the government land, Pit Grove had to go; by the time Bradley gets there, Pit's been arrested for cattle rustling.

At the Lazy G ranch, Bradley nearly gets shot by a man named Chalk Beeson - who claims to be a Broken Arrow man, taking care of the ranch. Bradley doesn't believe him for a second.

And worse, he learns from Beeson that Pit is to be hung at dawn. Even if Pit is guilty of cattle rustling, a lynching isn't the punishment for such a crime.

When Bradley's superiors said it'd be the hardest assignment of his career, they weren't kidding!

But he'll bring the law to Hanson and straighten out the county of Bonham for good - as swift and harsh as if Death Wore Spurs...

Death Wore Spurs is a thrilling and suspenseful Western.
