Tack Gentry, numbed by the blow, stared at the stone wall. He had counted on Childe, counted on his stirring up an investigation. Once an investigation was started, he possessed two aces in the hole he could use to defeat Hardin in court, but it demanded a court not controlled by Hardin. With Childe's death he had no friends on the outside. Betty had barely spoken to him when they met, and, if she was going to work for Hardin in his dance hall, she must have changed much. Bill London was a cripple and unable to get around.

He was going to break the power of Hardin, Olney, and Soderman, and he was going to start right here. “There's goin' to be an investigation,” he said loudly, “and it'll begin down in Austin. ” The big man thrust toward him, his wide, heavy shoulders looking broad enough for two men. ” “Thieves and murderers,” Tack added. ” The big man lunged. ” somebody shouted loudly.

That ranch belongs to me. ” Van Hardin smiled. “Evidently you aren't aware of what happened here,” he said quietly.
