A Cold Hard TrailPaperback - 2001
The devil's on my tail, and he's wearing a badge. Arrested for a robbery I didn't commit, I broke out of jail and took it on the lam...
The Fosterville sheriff's bagged a few outlaws. The trouble is, Kid Parmlee, his buddy Zeb, and his Paw are dead ringers for bandits who took a stagecoach and made off with a fortune in gold. First step for the Kid and his partners is to make a fast getaway before they get hanged. On the run--and trapped between a trigger-happy lawman and a trio of hard-core desperadoes--the Kid finds himself outnumbered and outgunned. All he has now is raw nerve and blind rage to clear his name and escape the cruel plains alive.
In the next book in the Texas Outlaw series, A Cold Hard Trail, Spur Award-winning author Robert Conley has crafted Kid Parmlee, a fearless flesh-and-blood adventurer who lives and breathes the West as it really was.
"Robert Conley spins a fast-action tall tale salted with Western humor."--Elmer Kelton on Fugitive's Trail
