Tension was rising fast in the hell-for-leather town of Little Cody, Wyoming. A young girl had been murdered and the killer was locked up in the local jail, awaiting trial. But the rough-and-ready miners weren’t prepared to let justice take its course. The only law they craved was lynch law. And to make things worse, the killer’s family was trying every dirty trick they could think of to make sure the case never reached the courts. As winter locked its icy grip on the isolated mountain town, Fate involved the legendary town-tamer Sam Judge and his gun-swift young partner Matt Dury in the affair. And as snow piled up outside and temperatures grew hotter than Hell within, the men from Texas soon found themselves dodging bullets and fists to make sure that the killer had his day in court ... his Judgment Day.
