KIRKUS REVIEW

New Mexico in 1881 and the Gringo grabbing of the Spanish land grants point up Lee Holland's attempts to get justice for the murder of his younger brother and to establish one Rex Condon as a scoundrel -- particularly in Ann Garland's eyes. Lee's traps do not catch Condon; the remnants of Billy the Kid's gang are a nuisance and a danger; Lee must have three old men to prove land thefts and rescue Ann -- all before he can call Condon to account. Smart pace and a varied pattern here.
