This is a good, basic western story. Characters are well drawn. Cotton is fed up with his money-grubbing boss and hired guns who get paid twice as much as he does. He is also upset about disturbing recent events. His two sidekicks, Bill and Santiam, add a little Laurel-and-Hardy-type levity as Cotton investigates. A couple of love interests could go in several directions. Not easy to predict--keeps you reading.
