Summary

King Creek was a rough-and-ready mining town set right in the heart of the Nevada goldfields. There was no law to speak of except Stover's Law - and it was ruthlessly enforced by one greedy woman, her three callous sons, and a dozen hired gunmen.

The situation was quickly going from bad to worse. A failed assassination attempt had left the only man capable of defying the freebooters crippled for life, and his wife was at her wits' end. The Stovers were systematically fleecing the townsfolk of everything they had. Anyone who stood in their way was either bought off... or killed off.

In desperation, she finally turned to Sam Judge, an old friend, for help. But it was a tall order even for that legendary town-tamer.
