· In the late 1800s American west U.S Marshal Tyrone Narrowhawk and his big partner Merle Johnson bust a cattle rustling ring in pursuit of a killer named Pearson. But capturing this slippery devil turns out to be no easy task.
· They are joined by Hawk’s old mentor, a way-past-retirement crusty old ( but very capable) lawman named Pike, who still has a trick or two up his sleeve.
· In their pursuit they encounter renegade Kiowa on the warpath and must extricate themselves from some tricky situations. Several years before there was a joint Kiowa-Comanche Indian raid and massacre of soldiers and civilians where a shipment of government gold bullion was stolen. Pearson has a plan to use money from stolen cattle to buy black market army Winchester rifles and ammunition to trade with the Kiowa chief who engineered the original raid. He wants that gold. Hawk, Merle, and Pike throw a monkey wrench into his plans. But he’s clever. Once arrested it’s not over. He tries to bury them in an avalanche of snow, but they are clever too. They don't give up so easily.
