Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie rides into the wild town of Almagre trailing a Pecos bank robber who has left two men dead. All Bowdrie has to go on is an unconvincing eyewitness description, a name scrawled on a tattered post card, and his own skills as a master tracker. But Bowdrie will need luck as much as skill when looking for answers in Almagre, for the town is gripped in a stranglehold by a ruthless cattle baron named Bonelli, and to bring his quarry back, Bowdrie will pin on a marshal’s star to face down Bonelli and his gunmen.

With a widow’s daughter, a lost mine, and a missing prospector in the balance, Buck has no choice but to solve the mystery…or die trying.
