Keeping The Peace

In Keeping the Peace – Tales from the Old West we have a collection of lesser known stories of old west lawmen. The stories begin with the murder of Dora Hand, a very popular saloon singer in Dodge City, Kansas. Dora was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was murdered while she slept. The crime scene was investigated by Assistant City Marshal Wyatt Earp and Sheriff Bat Masterson who would lead a posse to hunt for her killer.
