(From the publisher):
A dead man is slung over Steel's saddle as he rides into the town of Black Rock.The townsfolk burn with rage, for the murdered man was well-loved; taken hostage during a bank raid, he had been slain by the notorious Tyler gang.
Inspired not by sentiment but the sweet smell of a $5000 reward steele offers his shooting irons to aid the posse's pursuit of the vicious gangsters.
But the posse is swamped by a hail of lead in the deadly cross-fire of an ambush. Who set them up? Steele is suspect Number One, and a stricken sheriff's son swears vengeance. The town turns against Steele, and he turns to the Tylers for dollars and deliverance.
In a devastating denouement of double-cross and death, Steele saves his hide, but looks set to hang... a problem that leaves him in suspense.
