Someone was out to get Pace Larrabee! Someone had crippled him in an ambush, killed one of his men, and rustled a herd of horses. . . someone had stampeded his cattle and threatened to poison his water holes. Pace had carved a thriving ranch in the wild, untamed wilderness of Oregon. He'd been helped by Arliss, the woman who staked him to a strange and passionless partnership, but he had to be wary of Gilgen, the man with a dark past and a strange hold over Arliss. And he had other enemies. Was his foe among the nesters who poached on the land back in the hill? Even their fiery women had their reasons for hating him. One from among the enemy legion was about to step forth, one with an obsession and a deadly aim-to kill Pace Larrabee!

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.
