There's a thin line between the law and the lawless in this Ralph Compton western...

Newspaper reporter Lester T. Booker traveled to Santa Fe to interview legendary gunfighter and dime novel hero Ransom March. But the quick-drawing “Prince of the Plains” Booker meets turns out to be little more than an old ex-lawman of questionable moral fiber who doled out death to unsuspecting—and sometimes unarmed—outlaws.
One outlaw who escaped Rance’s brand of justice is the man known as The Gravedigger, who earned his moniker for burying his victims alive. Now, the unrepentant murderer has resurfaced, compelling Rance to come out of retirement and put his old enemy six feet under once and for all.
For Booker, it’s the story of a lifetime—and an education in learning just how the west was really won…
