Sheepman Abel McKenzie and cattleman Zack Rainford were best friends, but now, in 1887 Montana Territory, the two are mortal enemies - and their feud threatens to throw the people of Meriwether County into a bloody range war. Three ranchers have been killed, and the investigation into the homicides received only cursory review. One of those three men was McKenzie's employee.

Deputy U. S. Marshal Merlin Fanshaw is sent to look into these murders, but his job is complicated by a corrupt sheriff, a mysterious range detective, and a secret romance between McKenzie's son and Rainford's daughter. If the young couple got married, Fanshaw wonders if it might help unite the feuding families - or would it light the fuse on a lethal powder keg? Can Deputy Fanshaw prevent any further bloodshed? What will it take for him to put an end to the Meriwether County War?
