Sheriff Kyle of Deadeye, Nevada, is headed east to the nation’s capital and he’s about to discover that the law can be even wilder in the big city than in the Wild West. It’s a fact that hits home when he’s the one accused … of murder.
Kyle’s come to the city to give a report to his senator on the misdeeds of Nevada’s filthy rich copper kings. But before he has a chance, he’s knocked unconscious, later coming to alongside his senator—now dead, with Kyle’s knife embedded in the corpse.
Welcome to Washington D.C., where corruption, intrigue, and murder are all in a day’s work. Kyle’s got no alibi, no memory, and apparently doesn’t have a prayer … unless he can find a way to outwit, outfox and outmaneuver the masters of deception and double-crosses.
Also includes the mysteries “They Killed Him Dead,” in which a respected homicide detective solves a murder several times over, only to be proved wrong again and again, to the amusement of his fellow cops; “The Mad Dog Murder,” the story of a patrol officer who dreams of joining the homicide squad, and finds that the ticket to advancement—and romance—may be a Pekingese dog; and “The Blow Torch Murder,” in which every criminal in town is eager to turn himself in … and the reason is a real killer.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Much like Kyle in Killer’s Law, L. Ron Hubbard was born and bred on the western frontier and made his way east to explore and experience life in Washington, D.C. But unlike the sheriff, Mr. Hubbard enjoyed his time in the capital, where he went to college at Georgetown. He came to know the ins and outs of the city as well as he knew the arroyos and canyons of the west, giving him the kind of insights he needed to write stories like Killer’s Law.
