The Hot Kid by Leonard Elmore

This is a book about a US Marshal chasing various criminals during Prohibition. The writing is original, colorful, humorous and completely believable. Carlos Webster shot his first criminal at 15. He's not proud of that fact but the man was stealing his cattle. Throughout the rest of the book Carlos (now known as Carl) invites the unlawful to turn over their lives of crime and do the right thing HIS way. . . .calmly, highly skilled and well-armed.
