Incident at Fort Keogh
When Mordecai Sapp turned up on the doorstep of lawman and medical man Santiago Toole, with a bullet wound in his head that should have killed him, he wasn't interested in locating a sheriff. All he wanted was doctoring. But it didn't take Toole long to figure out that Sapp's brothel had been burned to the ground and its staff of prostitutes and barkeepers murdered. Only Sapp had escaped. Although the denizens of Sapp's were hardly respected citizens, murder is murder, and Sheriff Toole set out to investigate. Sergeant Major Wiltz at Fort Keogh warned Toole to stay away or the army would put him away. The army thought it would be easy to scare off one sheriff. But the army was wrong. Some sheriffs just don't scare--or die--that easily.
