Someone was out to get Pace Larrabee. First he was crippled in an ambush then one of his men was killed. But it didn't stop there.

This is the tense, exciting story of a man besieged by an invisible enemy; a man who had carved a thriving ranch out of wild, unclaimed land and stood to lose everything if he didn't uncover that enemy.

Under the leadership of Pearce Jerome, owner of the largest ranch in the area, the Cowmen's Protective Association was formed. With the single exception of Chance Abelard, every rancher joined it. Tempers flared, and besides the threat of force, the Association meant to black-list Abelard's Two C Ranch.
