Justice Dominates
by Nedler Palaz

Set in Sheridan, Wyoming, in 1899, book eleven in the Checker Board series continues to follow the trials and tribulations of Judge Dave Smith, and his family, friends, and foes. When a rattlesnake is set loose in his courtroom, stopping a civil trial and creating chaos, Dave suspects a hidden agenda, and he sets about to learn who caused the mayhem, and why. Separately, following a prison break, Dave’s old US marshal partner, Jim Bowen, trails the “Hole in the Wall” outlaw gang, eventually joining forces with former sheriff, William “Red” Angus. Meanwhile, at the Checker Board, Dave’s son Seth establishes a horseracing circuit, showcasing the ranch’s thoroughbred champions. As the judge and his friends attempt to stop notorious bandits and bring law and order to Wyoming, their dogged persistence culminates in a final calamity involving Dave, Jim, and The Black, the ancestral sire of the Checker Board racehorses.

Nedler Palaz is a pen name chosen by author Nellie Pallagi to reflect her historical western fiction novel series “The Checker Board.” Nellie has led an active life, with a thirty-seven-year career as a property and casualty business lines’ underwriter, and an ongoing forty-year membership in POWERtalk International, a non-profit organization of public speaking clubs. Nellie decided it was time to publish the manuscripts she had been working on since the 1950s. The series beginning is set in 1879 Texas, and in the late 1880’s, on a ranch in Wyoming. The Checker Board series reflects the author’s lifetime interest in the historical western genre. When she isn’t writing, the Granville, Ohio, resident enjoys mentoring a group of beginning writers.
