Description

Bruce Martell is a man of principle. Riding into Indio Basin in search of his kid brother, he immediately feels uneasy. Before he can encounter even a single settler, he happens upon the corpses of four poached cows.

After a brief encounter with the angry owner of the slaughtered cattle, he makes his way into the town of Starlight. Here he finds a climate of hostility, the farmers and settlers pitted against the cowboys and cattlemen. He feels the settlers’ hostility keenly, and after an altercation with a drunkard, he finds himself in need of rescue from the angry mob—and he finds it in the beautiful, red-haired Tracy Carling.

Starlight is fraught with tension, and the mysterious Jason Spelle seems to be fanning the flames of hatred. Can Bruce Martell get to the bottom of the conflict and find his brother before the tension breaks out into an all-out war? When settlers start turning up dead, it seems like there will be no escape from violence.

Author Bio
L. P. Holmes

L. P. Holmes (1895–1988), also known as Matt Stuart, was the author of several outstanding Western novels, including Somewhere They Die, which won the Spur Award from the Western Writers of America. Born in a log cabin in the heart of the Rocky Mountains near Breckenridge, Colorado, he moved with his family when very young to Northern California. It was there that his father and older brothers built the ranch house where he grew up and where, in later life, he would live again. He published his first story, “The Passing of the Ghost,” in Action Stories in 1925. He was paid half a cent per word and received a check for forty dollars. He went on to contribute nearly six hundred stories of varying lengths to the magazine market as well as to write numerous Western novels. In his stories, one finds the common themes in Western fiction: the loyalty that unites one man to another, the pride one must take in his work and a job well done, the innate generosity of most who populate his communities, and the vital relationship between a man and a woman in making a better life.
