This western that in fact is more of a mystery case does not have the most original plot in the world, but is very readable and keeps up the rhythm. Here is how the book begins:
Quote:
It was not until the evening when old John Runnels, who had been the town marshal in my school days, and was now chief of police under the new city charter, came into the dingy little private banking room to arrest me that I began to realize, though only in a sort of dumb and dazed fashion, how much my promise to Agatha Geddis might be going to cost me.

But even if the full meaning of the promise had been grasped at the time when my word was given, it is an open question if the earlier recognition of the possible consequences would have made any difference. Before we go any farther, let it be clearly understood that there was no sentiment involved; at least, no sentimental sentiment. Years before, I, like most of the other town boys of my age, had taken my turn as Agatha's fetcher and carrier; but that was only a passing spasm—a gust of the calf-love which stirs up momentary whirlwinds in youthful hearts. The real reason for the promise-making lay deeper. Abel Geddis had been crabbedly kind to me, helping me through my final year in the High School after my father died, and taking me into his private bank the week after I was graduated. And Agatha was Abel Geddis's daughter.
It's "Cherchez la femme"-time again, folks!

I found this book by accident browsing PG and was quite intrigued. It was published in 1918.

Apart from his vital stats (1856-1930), I didn't find any info about Francis Lynde.

As always streamlined, added a TOC and a cover.

Have fun
