Synopsis

The Cattlemen's Association sends Powder-Keg Bradley to resolve Margo Peters' disputed claim to her inherited property, Slash K. As Bart McAllister murders to steal the deeds, the mystery deepens about why he will kill for a ranch without enough gress for one cow.

Notes

This reprint has been shortened from six pages with the removal of page two of the original printing. The reprint suffers from the loss of critical information about Bart McAllister's theft of title deeds and the arrival of Powder-Keg Bradley at Margo Peter's ranch.
