(From the publisher):
He may be a Confederate-turned-bounty-hunter with a predilection for trouble, but Lou Prophet knows you never outstay your welcome in a town that wants you dead. Now, all because a young fool with a lousy poker hand couldn't hold his temper, Prophet has a bloodthirsty posse aiming to pump him full of hot lead for murdering the son of prominent cattleman Gerard Loomis.
Unfortunately, before he has the chance to hightail it out of the Dakota Badlands, Prophet is wounded by a bullet and left for dead. Saved by a woman rancher named Layla Carr, who hides him out at her ranch, Prophet realizes he must find a way to finish this fight before Loomis finds a way to even the score...
