The Avenging Ranger
All hell is breaking loose…
When ruthless oil baron Emerton Martin’s offer to buy an oil field covering four ranches across North Point is rejected, he recruits local outlaws to terrorise the area.
Their first target – the Sloping S ranch, run by Jefferson Ward.
Meanwhile, Jefferson’s daughter, Evelyn, works as a schoolteacher in the neighbouring town of Eagle Bend.
A chance encounter with Luke Clayton, the sheriff of North Point, will set in motion a series of explosive events that will change their lives forever…
Things soon come to a head when Evelyn’s father is killed, her brother goes missing – presumed dead – and the family ranch is destroyed.
Returning to North Point, Evelyn soon finds herself drawn into a dangerous web of violence, murder and revenge.
And behind it all is an unknown figure claiming to be the Avenging Ranger…
Who is this mysterious stranger?
And will Emerton Martin be stopped before it is too late…?
The Avenging Ranger is a classic tale of the old west with an added twist of mystery. The perfect read for fans of Zane Grey.
