Storyline

Bob Jolley is an angry young man who confronts Judge "Hanging Harry" Whitaker about unjustly sentencing his father to death. An attempt on the life of the chief witness leads Adam to wonder if Bob might be right. Powerful interests, including a senator and a railroad, seem to have wanted Bob's father dead. Adam learns that a gunman has apparently been hired to silence Bob. Adam, with the support of his brothers and his father, must defend Bob and bring the truth to light. Written by Charles Delacroix
