Abstract:

"John Sherburn, a trouglemaking gunfighter, rides into the small Texas town of Amityville. He falls in with Peter Gresham, the most successful businessman in Amityville and the first real friend he has had. Gresham has only one purpose in life: to find and kill Red Hawk, a renegade Indian chief who tortured and killed Gresham's brother. Gresham wants Sherburn to help him in this quest. There is one prohibition on which Gresham insits--Sherburn is to avoid any social contact whatsoever with Jenny Langhorne, the woman Gresham intends to marry. Not only does Sherburn meet Jenny Langhorne, but the two are at once powerfully attracted to each other. The situation could threaten the friendship between Sherburn and Gresham, except that, following another raid, Gresham rides out of Amityville to track down Red Hawk, leaving Sherburn in charge of his business enterprises. Jenny tells Sherburn that she is certain that Red Hawk has placed spies in Amityville to report any and all efforts to find him and that, if Sherburn finds one of these spies, he might be able to locate the terrifying leader of the renegade band on his own."--Jacket flap.
