Floyd Danner is out for revenge in the final book of The Calamitous Breed Trilogy. The first target of his vendetta ride is Walt Tabor, the man he promised to kill in Blood City. Initially, Danner has only the cowboy Hound Olivo at his side, but will carefully select three others to help him in his pursuit of the men Danner holds responsible for killing his dear friend, Marshal CB Wooly. They include the mysterious and deadly Apache with many names, the maniacal Laughing Billy Bemo, and last but not least, the rancher Stu Graybow.
Through a series of visions, the Apache knows Floyd Danner intends to track him down. With the formulation of a most ingenious plan, he teams once again with Laughing Billy. These two hired killers will await Danner and his men in highly unlikely surroundings. Stu Graybow has no worries about Danner coming after him, but fears the law and bounty hunters will pursue him for killing CB Wooly. To protect himself, Graybow hires five proven gunmen. Against the odds he faces, Danner begins to doubt his abilities and dreads leading his men into a fight they can't possibly win. However, Floyd Danner has one edge he greatly underestimates, but if properly used, will even the odds.
