Where Will The Trail Lead Then?
When old man Ruff dies, leaving $1 million to his son, Ricky Degard is tasked with delivering the documents of the inheritance.
But it proves to be far from the straight forward transaction he first thought.

Given the simple task by Haver Ruff of investigating into his brother’s affairs, they soon find their own lives to be in real danger.
When a masked intruder shoots Arno Ruff in cold blood, and with no other witnesses to prove his innocence, Degard quickly finds himself behind bars for a murder he didn’t commit.
But who is the hombre that wants to frame him?
Once he escapes he has to prove his true innocence to win the aid of the Sheriff and his posse, and get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the Ruff inheritance.
Soon the forefront of their investigation becomes a heroic quest to save the innocent wife of Arno, Chloe Breeze, who is kidnapped by the mysterious masked man.
To make matters worse, she also wanted by another unknown figure for her true claim to the inheritance.
But who is this masked man that seeks her?
Can Degard and Fennick save her before it is too late?
Will the Justice Riders restore peace to the town, or will the money-grabbing villains win the day?
Bursting with mystery, action and adventure, Justice Riders is a must read for fans of Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey.
