The Paleface Killer
Brett Conroy rules with an iron fist…
No one dares to challenge his authority in Macey’s Folly – a ramshackle town deep in the heart of Arizona .
His henchmen are always at his side, ready and waiting to do his bidding.
But when a mysterious stranger arrives, everything begins to change.
Long-standing power structures that have been in place for years begin to crumble.
The stranger, calling himself The Paleface Killer, starts disrupting the order of things.
And this straight-talking stranger doesn’t hold back when it comes to using violence to get his own way.
He claims that he wants to clean up Macey’s Folly, clear out all the hoodlums and corrupt lawmakers, and place it under his jurisdiction.
But Conroy, a shyster lawyer, the corrupt mayor and the sheriff, are not going to go down without a fight.
They refuse to relinquish their hold on the town.
And they attempt every brutal trick in the book to try and rid the settlement of this stranger.
When The Paleface Killer meets charming and courageous Tracey Lee, the girl Conroy is intending to marry, the scene is set for a maelstrom of murder and mayhem.
The stakes for power and control have never been higher.
And in such lawless times, anything could happen…
