"Smoke Jensen has met some down-and-dirty, murdering prairie scum over the years. But this time it's personal and it's bloody--and going to get bloodier. First, they stole fifty of the hundred horses Smoke delivered to his old friend Big Jim Conyers in Tarrant County, Texas. Then they stole two thousand cattle from Big Jim ... and killed him just for the fun of it. Now they're going to pay ... The leader of this unholy band of devils is Delbert Catron--but everyone calls him The Professor. Whatever he's called, he leads the most ruthless gang of vicious kill-crazy desperadoes this side of the border. Hell-bent on avenging his friend's murder, nothing will stop Smoke Jensen from hunting down these killers."--Back cover.
