Open Range Justice (Mr. Justice Book #3)
Mr. Justice gets summoned to a ranch in southern Kansas where a huge rancher is gobbling up small outfits around him. He uses all sorts of dirty tactics including rustling the small rancher’s market-ready steers before they are driven to market. A killing happens and Lance Logan works to pin it on one of the big rancher’s men. They win in the long run and the widow keeps her ranch. Then he is lured to northern Kansas where a man’s son is charged with murder. He didn’t do it and it’s nip and tuck if Mr. Justice can find the evidence needed before the sure-thing hanging trial starts for the innocent man.
