About this Item

Bantam - 253204. A late novel from the most prolific and bestselling Western genre writer of all time. The story of a loner, drifting through Colorado, who stopped for a drink in the wrong bar in the wrong town and killed the wrong man in a fair fight, only to find himself hanged and left for dead. Cut down by a woman and boy he'd befriended just short of strangling to death, he vowed there would be hell to pay for the people in the wrong town. Paperback Original. First Printing, First Edition. Pictorial wrappers show only minimal surface and edgewear and light reading creases. No tears, no bumping, no chipping. A collectable copy of a somewhat scarce L'Amour. Bookseller Inventory # 005326

About this title

Synopsis:

It seemed the perfect place to lie low. The owner of the ranch was an attractive gray-haired lady who had once been an actress. The other woman was a beautiful, fragile-seeming blonde. They needed repairs done, and he needed to disappear for a while.

The first sign that things were not as they should be was when a Pinkerton man questioned him about a missing woman. Then he accidentally found a will belonging to the previous owner of the ranch. After that, a young lady showed up in town making claims that the place belonged to her.

Worried that his hideout was turning into a battleground, he didn’t know what would be more dangerous, staying or leaving. For a man interested only in passin’ through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle....

From the Publisher:

"I'm just passing' through," the rider said when they asked him his name. And from then on, in the high country around Parrot City, he was called just that: Mr. Passing' Through, a man who rode a blue roan with a skull and crossbones brand and didn't know to keep to himself. And he wouldn't keep to himself. Because something about a parched and dusty ranch appealed to him, and something about a woman's hair made him think of not being alone, and something about a scheme to grab the land away from its rightful owner made him want to stay and fight. And so he stayed and fought. Because liars, killers, and cheaters were coming after Passing' Through with murder in their eyes, and a gun had a way of making him feel at home.
