This fast-paced story is about a tough rebel named Destry who is sent to prison for years, serving time for a crime he did not commit. Once out, he aims to seek revenge on the 12 jury members who sent him to prison and voted for his incarceration. However, his mission isn’t to kill but to find other unique ways as punishment and to make their lives miserable. Neatly plotted and briskly told, it illustrates Brand’s remarkable gift for storytelling. One of the greatest western authors of all time. Max Brand leads the reader on a very authentic tale of the old west the way it was.
