Two men team up to take down a corrupt rancher in this western in Ralph Compton's USA Today bestselling series...

Chance Tyree never looks for trouble. But with his reputation as a lethal gunhand, trouble has a habit of finding him. In the Utah canyonlands, Chance ends up at the wrong end of a rope after he’s accused of being a hired killer—and is saved from the hangmen by Owen Fowler. Fowler knows what it’s like to be punished for another man’s crime. He spent nine years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit, and now he’s come home to start over.
 
That’s something local rancher Quirt Latham will never allow. He’s making a play to take over Fowler’s old property, and killing is a small price to pay. On the run from Latham’s men, the new friends hole up with a grizzled cowman and his daughter, and learn that Latham’s sinister ambitions reach even farther than they thought. Now, with Latham determined to take them down, and a cold-blooded corrupt sheriff coming for blood, Tyree’s lightning-fast draw is the only chance they have left...
