Bruce Woods is a newcomer in Mulejaw County.
He’s immediately faced with hostility from the Texan community, who are already suspicious of new faces arriving in town and taking over the local ranches.
Unfounded rumours that he hopes to cut off the town’s water supply don’t help the situation, and he soon finds his herd targeted with illegal activity.
Bruce doesn’t know who is behind the trouble: any one of the neighbouring ranchmen could be after him.
He requests help, and Ranger Clay Roach is sent to Mulejaw to control the lawlessness – but he’s just one man against many, armed with only a law star, a sixgun and his sense of justice.
It’s not an easy job.
All of the ranchers have a motive to target Bruce.
Before long, fists and hot lead rain down on Clay, but he fights back every way he knows.
As the truth begins to out, he heads into the climax with a ready gun and steadfast courage in search of one thing: justice.
