One manís determination to find and kill the man that murdered his younger brother is such that he will go outside the law to get the job done.
A fatherís incautious moment, a trusted friendís indiscretion and a daughterís naÔve and foolish mistake set the stage for a peaceful mountain valley to become a battleground. GOLD! The one the magnet that could attract one of the deadliest band of outlaws in the west into Shannon Hillís serene world and turn her young life into a deadly blood feud to avenge her dead father and kill Billy ďGunnerĒ Farren and any of his bloodthirsty gang she can find.
Tucker Prophet, Captain in the re-formed Texas Rangers, and his men are on the same trail for different reasons. It leads them along the Arkansas River, into the Colorado Mountains.
Billy Farren made a fatal mistake. He killed Tuckerís younger brother and only surviving family member. The crime takes a back seat to vengeance and a sworn Texas Ranger gives up his badge and will chase Farren through and beyond the gates of hell to see him pay with his life for that killing.
Prophets Rest turns into a battleground as a daughterís unfaltering love and deadly anger team up with a brotherís vengeance to face Gunner Farren for the final showdown and end his reign of terror.
Anger flared briefly on Tuckerís face.
ďBelieve what you want, Sheriff. All I need to know is which way that group headed after they cowed you and your fair citizens.Ē
The inebriated old sheriff bristled. ďBoy, you better back up a step. Me and my men trailed that bastard clear to the Colorado line. I buried two friends along the way. They fought hard and true, doing their duty. So donít be coming in here sayiní that me and mine are cowards. If I was a bettiní man, Iíd say the way that trail was headiní, they was makiní for Colorado Springs. They bushwhacked us as we slept like a bunch of damn yellow scum. Yíall finish your drinkiní, rest up tonight and just move on out of my town.Ē
