There had been some serious horse thefts not six months ago. Charlie Austin would have fitted the bill, but Sheriff Cole knew different.
This time, Austin was innocent. Nope, this time it was an out of state gang, the Napiers or the Rogers Gang maybe. A few days staked out in the mountains and several dead horse-thieves later and the raids stopped. Obvious, really: Austin had come into money and spent his time in the Waterhole.
Which was why when Sheriff Cole and Mayor McGinley returned from Taya Two Horses ranch, he knew neither Samuel nor Zeke were involved.
