Description

Things were getting out of hand in Logan County and Judge Leandro knew it. The coal miners were up in arms because George Fletcher one of the coal barons in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky had been cutting back on mine safety in order to increase his profits. A Mine explosion in the Jackhorse Mountain mine had resulted in the death of three miners and a secret committee of the miners had sworn to make Fletcher pay a costly penalty for increasing the risk to the miners. Randall Sexton and Buddy Donnelly had been selected by the secret miners committer to destroy the coal wash plant at Two-Mile as a warning to Fletcher. Unfortunately things began to get murky when a body was discovered in the slurry pond while Morgan, Virgil and Ancil were investigating the destruction of the coal plant. Tension in Logan County became stretched to the breaking point when Fletcher began to hire mercenaries to protect his coal plants and mines from further attack by the miners. Colonel Hiram Morgan, a retired CIA assassin and Morgan's uncle, recognized Clay Poole, who was now employed as the Chief of Security for the Fletcher mines. Poole, a former Special Forces Captain, had been 'sheepdipped' by the CIA and, under the command of Colonel Morgan had been selected to train the Mujahadeen in the use of Stinger Missiles. Hiram suspected he was now operating as an independent 'fixer' and was somehow involved in encouraging a war between the mine owners and miners in Logan County. Judge Leandro does not want a war in Logan County and authorized Morgan, Virgil, Ancil and Hiram to employ any means necessary to prevent its outbreak and they fully intended to do just that.show more
