(From the publisher):
Texas rancher Ben Langham hired Luke Starbuck for his loyalty and a toughness gained by riding with Rip Ford's Texas volunteers. But when Langham sent Starbuck after a band of horse thieves, a loyal man left behind the only home he had ever known - and met the stranger in himself.
To track down a thief, Starbuck posed as an outlaw, misled his woman, and killed to protect his own life. Then he rode into a kingdom of vicious horse thieves and into a fierce duel with a criminal mastermind hiding behind a respectable life. Somewhere along the line, honest, hardworking Luke Starbuck discovered that he was a changed man - who had forged himself a freedom and a future in a place where other men died...
