Rocky Mountain Showdown
Big Max Higgins ran the outlaw town of Hell's Creek up in the north
Montana Rockies...and he decided to include the nearby town of Barlow in
his cutthroat operation. What he didn't know was that Smoke Jensen was
there with his wife, visiting relatives.
It didn't take Smoke long to rout out the lot of them with angry fists
and blazing guns...but Smoke didn't count on Big Max doing something as
daring, desperate, and stupid as kidnapping his wife—and demanding the
town of Barlow itself as ransom.
Soon Big Max Higgins would look up and see the last mountain man riding
down the middle of the street with reins in his teeth and both hands
filled with .44s. Big Max had always wanted to make a name for himself,
and he was going to get it, too—carved on his gravestone.
