Alvin Boyd was a killer, not a bad man, but when he tried to escape his past, he found he stood alone. After Alvin's death, his brother, Asa, rode into town looking to avenge him. What he found was a white-hot range war. Quickly finding job as the town's deputy, Asa found it to be a tough job in this hard-fighting trail town and Asa found new enemies that included a murderous land baron and a deadly gunfighter. Caught in the dangerous crossfire between ranchers and moneymen, maddened by the murders of his brother and others, Asa Boyd's reward would be simple-the love of a beautiful woman.
