In this short story the old west punishment comes swiftly. Especially when the crime is murder.

Mort Clancy - a pathetic drunk - had one to many drinks at the local watering hole and he did something stupid: he shot the sheriff. Now there's a new law in town, and Mort's on his way to the hanging tree.

But the hanging tree has a terrible reputation, and what dies on the tree doesn't always stay dead. Mort knows it. But is there anything he can do to change his fate?
