Interesting story

Joseph A. West writes an interesting story of a detective inspector in New York CIty police department. In early 1880s he flees the city and heads to the west. The city slicker and the western gunfighter join together to rid the town of the bad men. Not the style of a typical Joseph A. West A story based on true life person.
