They Turned A Boy Into A Manhunter...
Once, impressed by their tales of gunplay and thievery, young Shell Tucker had been eager to call them his friends. Then he saw the men in Bob Heseltine's gang from the other side, when they robbed his father of twenty thousand in hard-earned money. By the time Shell buried his pa, he knew what he had to do. Going after the gold, he rode to Colorado and a town called Los Angeles, California. But it wasn't until the outlaws shot him down and left him to die that Shell Tucker got mad enough to want to live--and wreak a kind of vengeance they'd never seen before.From the Back Cover:
THE LONG HARD TRAIL TO MANHOOD...
His father always said he hung with the wrong crowd. That he was a boy heading for trouble. Now with his father's leg broken and a horse carrying twenty grand run off by outlaws, Shell Tucker had something to prove. That money belonged not just to his family but to neighbors who trusted the Tuckers with all they had. Shell was determined to get the money back. But he would need help. He found it in a mysterious man named Con Judy. Con would show him there were more intelligent ways for a man to make his mark than gunfighting. But if it came to a gunplay, there were few better allies than Con Judy. Together they would track the thieves through cold, rain, ambush, and treachery. Shell had set out with his father little more than a boy. And he wasn't going to stop until he came back a man -- or dead.
