But at least Tap has found a job that takes what he's got - integrity, nerves of steel, and a fast draw. Those things come in handy when you're a deputy marshall. But just as life seems to be settling down, Tap suddenly finds himself as acting marshall in a town that has little regard for the law. And it's not a pretty sight. He soon discovers just how hard it is to simultaneously hold off a vigilante crowd hungry for a lynching, control a wayward deputy who thinks he should be in charge, keep his lovely wife from worrying herself sicker, and uncover who's behind the trouble in Cheyenne. It's enough to push his patience and - faith - to be the breaking point. When the city council relieves Tap of his duties and Pepper of her worries, it's time to move on. But Tap just con't let things go. Why? Why can't he just leave Cheyenne to itself and concentrate on helping Pepper get through what's ailing her? Why does he have to put the lives of his family, his friends, and himself on the line for what is right?
