Why Not ?

To kill time, I diged hard into my library. And I found an interesting item I got years ago. A Lesley Selander one. A western, of course. It seems to be a sort of mix up between western and modern adventure. We don't see cars but I feel that this story takes place not so long ago; the buildings, furniture and so on...

Anyway, this is the story of a private investigator - see? - who is sent from USA to Australia to catch a criminal, robber and killer. The lead character is played by Jock Mahoney. From that, there is nothing unusual. The classic fists and gun fights, stagecoach robbery - in Australia, I recall - and little romance between Mahoney and the gal. I forgot her name.

A good little suspenser to waste time.
