Rebel Justice by Robert Gosnell is a short Western with several shooting scenes. It begins with a 15 year wait to kill a man who murdered his Grandfather during the war needlessly. Wayland runs into all kinds of bad luck following his tip.
Naturally the man owns most of the town. He is also very security conscious with guards and fencing around his home. Part of the police force is loyal only to him.
Wayland is shot before he even enters town. This turns out to be a case of mistaken identity. The man that shot him thought that he was searching for him. He had stolen the black stallion after his farm was taken away illegally.
Wayland is nursed back to health by a saloon girl that he falls in love with. She has also been wronged when the colonel breaks their engagement after she is raped. Wayland falls for her immediately.
With the help of the man that shot him Wayland is able to find a way to the colonel. He has already been beat, jailed and branded while committing several murders. He finds out that the man he had been chasing was dead and he had found the grandson.
This had the surprise ending and even a few twists. I was disappointed with the errors and the flat feeling in the plot. After reading that the author writes for TV then it made sense with this being better as a hour long show. A free book from smashwords.
