Ricky Cates is a vicious outlaw who kills without remorse. He also has a talent for deception: he has convinced a gullible writer that he’s the Robin Hood of the Range, a man who takes from the rich and gives to the poor.
Rance Dehner is on Ricky’s blood splattered trail. But he faces many obstacles. Before he can reach his target, the detective must confront Cates’s henchmen, another detective obsessed with capturing the killer, and a young woman who is hopelessly and dangerously in love with the Robin Hood of the Range.
