E. Jefferson Clay
Spargo was a mining town… but there hadn’t been any mining there for a while. The mines were in a dangerous condition, and their owner, Foley Kingston, refused to make improvements. So the miners-those who’d survived the numerous cave-ins and accidents-went on strike, and Kingston called on his old friend, Duke Benedict, to help him break it.
Benedict’s partner, big Hank Brazos, immediately sided with the miners. And even though Benedict knew Kingston was at fault, he had to stand by him. Back in the War, Kingston had saved his life, so he owed the man.
But there were darker forces at work in Spargo-from Kingston’s cheating wife Rhea to saloon owner Ace Beauford, who wanted to run the entire outfit all by himself. And then there was a man-mountain named Paddy Clancy, who figured to double-cross all of them!
Jefferson Clay is one of the many pseudonyms for legendary Australian author, comic book writer and illustrator, Paul Wheelahan.
