Marshal Matt Dillon and all of the other favorites from the long-running TV show are standing tall in this all-new Western adventure series. While rustlers and desperadoes fill the lawless frontier town of Dodge, Dillon is the one who sees that justice is done-whether it's served by the gavel or by the gun. ... Notorious killer Ed Flynn saved Marshal Dillon's life once, and now Matt is obliged to protect him against the Feeney gang-including the cold-blooded Jicarilla Kid. Matt is given three days to turn over Flynn before the gang burns Dodge to the ground.

But after two suspicious murders, it appears that Granville has a personal vendetta to settle and that Matt has three deadly gunmen to face-the Kid, Lee Feeney, and Granville. But Matt has an unlikely ally in a man he detests, a tubercular case who seems determined to take as many men with him to hell as he can-the man known as Doc Holliday PRAISE FOR JOSEPH A.
