Description - The Shadow of a Noose by Ralph Compton
In this Ralph Compton western, the Strange twins find themselves in double trouble... Young Jed and Tim Strange lost their father to an outlaw's bullet, and now their mother has succumbed to a fatal illness. Unable to farm their land due to a lack of funds, the twins set out to find their sister--who left home to avenge their father's death over a year ago. Farm life hasn't prepared the twins for the rough-and-tumble cow towns west of Missouri. And before they even begin their search, they're accused of a murder they didn't commit. Just barely escaping a posse's rope, the twins are on the run--wounded, hounded by the law, and desperately seeking the true killers... More Than Six Million Ralph Compton Books In Print!
