Wanted dead or alive…

Just before the dawn breaks, Chapman and his gang ride into the small town of Saddlerock.

They plan to rob the stage carrying more than a hundred thousand dollars’ worth of gold.

But their ambitions don’t stop there.

They also intend to embroil Matt Turner in the plot, and frame him for the robbery.

Driven mad by his desire for revenge upon Turner, who provided evidence that put them in jail, Chapman and his gang are not content on just killing him.

They want to make him pay.

They plant a series of incriminating objects that will tie Turner to the crime and, before he knows it, he finds himself in jail with a lynch mob banging down the doors.

The local sheriff believes his story, releases him and advises him to run under the cover of darkness and being a new life under a new identity.

But Turner will not rest until he has cleared his name and settled the score.

He finds himself trapped by a set of circumstances that were not his making, forced to kill to save his own skin.

And he will do anything it takes to make sure justice is done.

But with a one-thousand-dollar price tag on his head, can he survive long enough to bring Chapman and his gang to justice?

After all, these are some of the most dangerous men this side of the border…

Packed with fast-paced action and bullet flying showdowns, Saddlerock is a classic western about the true cost of revenge.
