Judge Phil Grayson has been found dead in his study, not just dead but murdered–and with an antique hood formerly used by executioners covering his head. The Judge collects ghoulish Old West memorabilia. The collection is valuable, but nothing’s been stolen so what is the motive? Of course a judge will have a lot of enemies and one of Grayson’s has just been released from prison. During his sentencing, he threatened to make the Judge sorry.
Now Darin Keefe is a hard man to find.
