Hack Sumpter made it to Silver City, a man who had no right to be alive. He had been bushwhacked, robbed and left for dead in the desert. But Silver City was an uneasy town. There had been a lot of robberies lately - and the dead victims couldn't talk to identify their murderers. No one in the town knew who they were. It could be anybody. The citizens of Silver City walked soft, kept their mouths shut, and locked their doors as tight as their suspicions. It looked as though Hack would have to find the killers by himself.
