In his sixth adventure, troubleshooter James Stark, known as Peacemaker, along with feisty and beautiful lady attorney Prudence McKay, are recruited by U.S. Marshal Evett Nix to help break up an illicit prizefighting ring operating in the lawless West. The no-holds-barred fights have resulted in several deaths. Marshal Nix unveils a plan for Stark, a former prize-fighter himself, to infiltrate the ring by pretending to resume his boxing career, lured by the big money to be made in the "Fist and Boot" fights. Be defeating the champion, he hopes to lure the ruthless and mysterious Eastern backers out and close down the operation. Prudence is an outspoken critic of the illegal sport. But he needs her support now, more than ever, as he plans to take on the spoiler, Jason Boullard. This fierce competitor is every bit a match for him in savate skills and he finds himself in a desperate struggle for his life.
