Someone is stealing Sully Wheeler’s cattle. Are they trying to force him out? Or are they after him because he’s an old time gun hand hiding from his past? And who is this red-coated Constable Theason who insists on investigating? Is this just cattle rustling or something else? The local newspaper seems to be more interested in what the Mounties are doing within their ranks than following the story of thieves and lost property; why is that?
With the rustlers on one side, his commanders treating him like a pariah, the press wanting information he can’t supply, a partner he doesn’t really trust, will Theason manage to survive?
