(From the publisher):
United States Deputy Marshal Ned Thomas is awaiting the arrival of two men who plan to kill him, when he receives an assignment from the US Army. He is to report to General Stanmore in Dalham. But why has he been chosen, despite the mutual hatred which exists between them? He is tempted to disobey orders, but his sense of duty prevails and he travels to Dalham.
Within a single day he goes from hero to suspected killer and is initially sentenced to hang. But his sentence is commuted to life imprisonment at the notorious Yukron Valley State Penitentiary, where many would have preferred a quiet death.
Now he must face danger from every quarter. Can he distinguish friend from foe and can he clear his name? Only time will tell.
