If Randal could make his ranch pay, he stood to inherit his grandfather’s fortune. But a cattle-rustling band of ranch-hands were robbing him blind, and he had to do something to stop them. He sent for Kitchin, the toughest man he knew—the man he had once sent to Fulsom Penitentiary.

Even though Kitchin would as soon break an hombre in two with his bare hands as shoot him, even with the offer of a fabulous regard, Kitchin wasn’t sure he’d live long enough to collect.

He didn’t know he had an ace up his sleeve—Pepillo, the Mexican kid they called “Blue Jay.”—From the Back Cover. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Faust, Frederick Schiller

Author Image

Frederick Schiller Faust aka Frank Austin, George Owen Baxter, Walter C Butler, George Challis, Evan Evans, Frederick Faust, John Frederick, Frederick Frost, David Manning, Peter Henry Morland, Max Brand...

Max Brand, one of America's most popular and prolific novelists and author of such enduring works as Destry Rides Again and the Doctor Kildare stories, died on the Italian front in 1944.

“No pulp writer was more prolific than Frederick Faust, who wrote nearly 15 million words under the pen name of Max Brand and seventeen others. He sold all his stories and sometimes wrote complete issues of Western Story Magazine. But Faust's most famous character was not a Western hero but a doctor—Dr. Kildare—who inspired a film of the same name plus fifteen sequels and a television series starring Richard Chamberlain.” (The Incredible Pulps: A Gallery of Fiction Magazine Art, c. 2006, p. 11).
