Clay Colbry has been a lot of things, some good, some bad. But now he's just a drifter who stumbles into the middle of a bloody Apache uprising. Not only had he been a scout for the U.S. Army, he had also been raised by Apaches, so he knows just how bad the situation is going to get.
But things go from bad to worse when he finds out an outlaw gang led by the ruthless Bass Giles is stealing Sierra Stage Company stock and selling the horses to the outlaws. Giles and his cutthroats have taken over the town of Furnace Creek as a base of operations and are bleeding it dry. Colbry's job is to root them out.
It's pretty much a suicide mission, but Colbry takes it on. He has an old score to settle with Giles and nothing-not the desert, not the Apache raiders, and not the small army of hardcases who follow Giles-is going to stop him from wreaking a terrible vengeance.
