"When cowboy artist Willie Russell is brutally slain, Sheriff Matthews hasn't much to go on - only the hoofprints of a spooked horse and Willie's sketches of the beautiful Santiago Crucifix, which had vanished a century before. Frustrated by the bluster of Willie's employer, rancher J.T. Brentwood, and incensed by the possessiveness of the arrogant ranch manager toward J.T.'s beautiful daughter, Angie, the sheriff turns to the story of the Santiago Crucifix. In it he finds eerie links that connect present events with the story of an infamous outlaw, whose courtship of a lovely woman ended in tragedy. To find who killed Willie Russell, he may also have to solve the old mystery of the crucifix and its disappearance. And to win Angie, he may have to make himself a target for a killer."; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
