It didn’t matter that the warrant was years old, or that Smoke Jensen had been cleared of all charges. A Texas bounty hunter named Bill Pike believed he could still collect a $10,000 reward for killing Jensen-and he intended to do just that.
But when Pike and his men came calling, Jensen was nowhere to be found. So they took the next best thing-Smoke’s woman-left behind a ransom note, and headed up into the Rocky Mountains. Now, Smoke is going after a gang of vicious shootists. With time running out, and Sally’s life hanging in the balance, he is returning to the high country where he came of age and built his legend. But this time, the mountain man won’t come back down until he’s stopped a bounty hunter bearing a worthless piece of paper and a mother lode of greed. It’s kill or be killed, and Smoke Jensen intends to be the last man standing, no matter how many people-or guns-he has to face.
