Louis L'Amour brings you the Wild West as you've never heard it before. This classic story, complete with a full cast, stirring music, and authentic sound effects, sweeps listeners back to the rough-and-tumble days of the old West - when men put their lives on the line for the sake of honor, and truth and justice were fought on the open plain.
On the trail of a ruthless killer named Carl Dyson, Ranger Chick Bowdrie finds the body of a rough-riding Californian, dry gulched and left to rot in the sun. With the dead man's horse in tow, Bowdrie ambles into the middle of a dispute between the H&H ranch and the Darcy spread. Seems some H&H hired guns are giving Jack Darcy a hard time...and leading the troublemakers is ranch owner Rack Herman, strangely in the middle of many a run-in.
But with the help of some friendly locals, Bowdrie pieces together a puzzle of murder, corruption, and the shady dealings of a power hungry rancher. Will Bowdrie travel far to track down Dyson...or is this killer closer than he thinks?
