Henry Farraday and his pretty daughter Sally lived peaceful lives before Jack Andrews went missing…
Before even the idea of a trial, a mob decides to convict Farraday, burning his ranch to the ground and leaving both him and his daughter with nothing.
Someone was behind the mob.
Someone wants Farraday out of the way and is prepared to do anything to achieve it.
Is it a grudge, is just plain jealousy?
Or perhaps it has something to do with the abandoned mine lying empty on Farraday’s land.
Either way, Ken Bradmore, local cattle dealer, is prepared to get to the bottom of it.
It doesn’t hurt that getting to the truth means spending more time with Sally Farraday either.
But just when the mystery seems solved, things will take a much darker turn.
Dead Man’s Legacy is a tale of buried treasure, true love and the cruel power of greed.
