But nobody would make that mistake twice, for Fats was hell on wheels, with both fists and guns.
When he arrives in Paradise City and the meets the crooks who control most of the town, the lead soon starts to fly.
Turning down an offer to become deputy sheriff, Fats becomes the ramrod for feisty Abigail Hammer.
Hammer is barely holding onto her ranch, fighting off the tragedies that she is faced with, not to mention the notorious Stockley, who is out to get hold of her ranch.
Now he findd himself facing countless rustlers and the formidable Coyote Kid.
But who is leading the rustlers?
And who is the mystery man who was killed before he could reveal his identity?
These and other questions will all have to be answered before justice is served — and if anyone could sort it all out, it will be the Canyon Killer.
