East of the Keystone Ranch territory is North Platte, Nebraska, where "Buffalo Bill" Cody and others organized a Fourth of July celebration in 1882. Now an annual event called the North Platte Independence Day Blowout, it was one of the earliest Western rodeos. The Keystone cowboy they call "Link" rides south for an extended leave and comes upon a strange stone tower inhabited by a trio of odd characters: a stonemason, his daughter, and a hunchback who drives an empty hearse and spends his days digging graves for women who have not died. After some time with these strange folks, Link is physically changed, and decides to ride to the Fourth of July Blowout. He plans to disguise himself and challenge his Keystone cohorts. But what will he do about the young woman who has fallen desperately in love with him?

The contractor by James C Work( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the old West, many men got away with murder. Too few lawmen, too much hustle and bustle going on. This seemed the case in 1868 when a railroad contractor, Kane Kelly, shot a boy dead. Kelly fled the territory and that, most people thought, was that. But they didn't reckon on Detective N.K. Boswell of the Rocky Mountain Detective Agency. He promised the boy's family that he would bring the killer back to Laramie for trial. Boswell finds his man supervising a railroad crew in Iowa. But bringing him back to Laramie will be difficult and dangerous. Kane Kelly's brother Sligo is also ramrod of a railroad crew and with his gang of toughs he is determined to stop Boswell. He has plenty of opportunities; it's forty miles by buggy to the nearest railroad. Then there's the flooded Missouri River to cross, and four hundred miles of open prairie. Sligo tries brute force, using flunkies to do his dirty work. He tries bribery. He persuades a woman to seduce Boswell into a compromising situation. In the end, Boswell's legendary patience runs out. He lays a cunning trap, using his prisoner for the bait. If it works, Boswell will arrest Sligo Kelly, too. If it works
