River Yates is a descendant of both the outlaws and lawmen that battled in the San Bois Mountains of the Oklahoma Territory. River was once as rambunctious as any of his ancestors, but that was before the voices of his brutal past started calling from the big red barn on his ranch. A decorated Vietnam veteran, one-time cop, and manhunter, River’s skills with fists and firearms are touted far and wide.
Now, however, the legendary River is not the man he used to be. Even the closest of friends marvel at what seems to border on cowardliness. Only River knows the truth, and in order to protect a newfound love from the homicidal antics of a madman, he must overcome the fears of turning back to the tactics of the River Yates of old.
