Range Boss Jack Carlsen has a fight on his hands. The Bar Circle spread, once prosperous, is now on the verge of going bust. The owner has been found dead in a whore’s bed, leaving behind debt and some unhappy ranch-hands who talk of quitting. The Bar Circle’s cattle have been taken by rustlers and the new owner is struggling to defend the ranch from ruthless gangs. Hearing of the ranch’s plight and spying the chance to make a quick profit, the men are circling like coyotes, ready to kill anyone who stands in their way.
Carlsen vowed he’d finished with gunfighting ten years ago. But how can the Bar Circle survive without his help? He knows he must buckle on his gunbelt once again.
