Jim Conover possessed the reputation of a man fast with a gun. But if he had to depend on that quickness today, he would be a dead man.

Dr. Clinton Alyard is a man on a mission, to rebuild his family's ancient lands and houses in England. Alyard will use anyone or anything to gain the wealth needed. It's natural that these two determined men should be enemies, one good and one evil.
