It only takes 3 words to describe this book: Just plain fun! Theres an aptly named villain Mr. Wylie. He doesnt just want most things, he wants the whole town.
His biggest impediment is lovely Cady McGill, owner of the only other saloon in town. Suddenly, real trouble comes to town in the person of the notorious gunfighter, Jesse Gault. He wears only black, smokes black cigarettes, wears a black patch over one eye and has a vengeful snarl. The only person that is unafraid of him is Cady McGill.
Mr. Wylie is sure Cady has hired the gunslinger and Cady is just as sure that Wylie has brought Gault to town to kill her. Gault, however, has other plans. His reputation is so frightening that strangers beg him to take their money and let them live.
The ironies will have you chuckling through the book. This is a lighthearted look at life in the West.
