The Hell Raisers

Years later and there’s still hell to pay…

Jeff Allard owns the Circle A ranch in Pearson County, South Dakota with his father Tom.

But there’s been trouble from the moment they settled there.

The land was once unofficially ‘owned’ by Isaac Hanton, owner of the Bar H Ranch.

Tom Allard may have bought the land legally but as far as Hanton sees it, the land is his and his alone.

As a man accustomed to ‘frontier’ law, Hanton sees it his right to do anything within his power to get rid of the Allards.

The only thing stopping him is the actual law; Sheriff Hazel, a good, hardened man who’ll not let Hanton get his way.

Not that’ll stop Hanton taking pot shots at the Allards.

And when three of his horses are stolen in the night and the tracks led onto the Allard’s land, it’s all the excuse Hanton needs.

Of course, the Allards had nothing to do with it.

But it is surprising that some horse hustlers have suddenly appeared in the county.

To add to Jeff’s surprise, three men show up out of the blue talking to his father.

They’re none other than Charlie Gowen, Bud Hannigan and Matt Sprunt – outlaws from one of the most fearsome gangs in the South:

The Hell Raisers.

And what’s more, it turns out his honest and wise father Tom Allard was once their gang leader.

It seems they want their old leader and pard back for a ‘job’ in Pine Ridge; but Tom has given up that life for good.

To him, all that matters in this world is Jeff.

They may leave quietly enough but Tom knows that it won’t be the last they’ll see of them.

And if, of course, they let slip that he’s still a wanted outlaw, then Tom’s done for. Especially if Hanton ever got wind of his past…

Can father and son live in peace or will Tom’s past finally catch up with him?

The Hell Raisers is a thrilling and classic Western.
