Summary (From the publisher):

The story of Clay Blaisedell, a celebrity sharpshooter who is called in to impose order in the godforsaken desert town of Warlock, where cattle rustlers rule and Apaches loom. But the more power Blaisedell is given to set things straight, the more things go wrong. Insane General Peach, Washington’s emissary to the region, rampages through it; mine owners connive against their workers, who stew in confused resentment, while the local judge is of course a drunk and the doctor a drug addict. The righteous certainties of the Western hero are shown in the end to be the favorite trappings of a deranged, even directionless, pursuit of power.
