Even before his adventures in Ricers of the Purple Sage, Lassiter was regarded as the mightiest gunslinger ever to sit a saddle. Therefore, it's no surprise he's the first man Josh Falconer calls to help save his business from the local tough trying to bankrupt his freight line. Though when Lassiter arrives in Bluegate, Jose is already dead and he finds his worst enemy, Kane Farrell, set to take over the line. With a price on his head, Lassiter doesn't get far before he's ambushed, shot and left for dead. He's determined the only man needing a grave will be Farrell.
