A hard term in Yuma Prison gave Ralph Tinsdale and his gunhawk sidekicks time to nurse a deep hatred for Smoke Jensen – the man who put them there. A bloody escape gives them the chance to get even. Their posse is already forty strong, the price on Smoke’s head is up to twenty grand, and with Jensen’s own wife shanghaied into Tinsdale’s deadly trap, this time there’s more at stake than Smoke’s own life.
With the Arapaho and Shoshoni for allies, and his .45 Colt for cover, Smoke is armed and waiting. Now, only the Green Mountains stand between Jensen’s iron will and his enemies’ lust for vengeance.
