(From the publisher):
After a casual dalliance with a young woman in New Mexico, Dex Yancey discovers that her family - the Espinoza clan - have lost their wealth and are too proud to accept handouts. They are being besieged by a rowdy group of badmen employed by Englishman Sir David Manchester, who wants to develop his own cattle ranch on Espinoza land.
Seeing that Dex is friendly with the Espinozas, Manchester hires him to persuade the family to sell their homestead. But Dex has a better idea, one that will ensure the land remains with the Espinozas and one that will cost Manchester his fortune...
