To habitues of the nation's top racetracks he's known as "The Bland Buddha of the Bangtail Circuit." Less polite players of the ponies call him a tout or a bookie. There's no doubt that Mr. Joe Maddox is a shrewd judge of horseflesh, but he's also a shrewd judge of men. And that's a critically important quality to possess, because Mr. Maddox repeatedly finds himself pitted against crooks and killers whose depredations are linked in some way to the racing game. Assisted by his sidekick Oscar, the heavyset handicapper has always managed to beat the odds, but sooner or later his luck is bound to change.... The work of prolific pulpster T.T. Flynn, 35 Mr. Maddox novelettes were published in the pages of Dime Detective between 1938 and 1950. Fast-moving and suffused with authentic racing atmosphere, they were among the most popular stories ever to appear in this prestigious crime pulp, second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.
Here are four of T. T. Flynn's greatest novellas--all filled with the blazing action and unforgettable characters readers have come to expect from the author of the classic "The Man from Laramie." In this volume, Flynn presents a young man who embarks on a dangerous hunt for his fugitive brother, a top rodeo rider determined to find the men who sent him to prison for three years, a man mistaken for one of the most notorious outlaws of the West, and, finally, a group of ordinary stage-coach passengers who must band together in a fight for their lives when Apaches attack an isolated desert station. Let the mastery of T. T. Flynn sweep you back to the Old West in all its untamed glory.
THE RAWHIDE KID

KING OF THE WEST
Few authors could write about the glory and adventure of the Old West as well as T. T. Flynn.

His insight into human character and his descriptive powers set him apart from his contemporaries, and both are powerfully evident in the four short novels collected in this volume, including the famous title novel, in which a man must fight tough odds to find out who paid a convicted cattle thief to frame him for murder. Drama, mystery, excitement and emotion--all of these and more can be found in abundance in these stellar examples of the West of T. T. Flynn.
