Dan Brady came to New Mexico to forget the violence of the Civil War. But he soon finds himself locked in a new war, fighting for justice against a group of killers who will do anything to ensure his silence.
The Union Army took part of Dan Brady's soul, but he still had the strength and determination to build a home and a quiet life with his family on the bone-dry plains of New Mexico. Out West barely a month, there's a brutal shooting in town. And Brady's the only witness.
The killers' threats won't keep Brady from testifying, but their revenge turns him into a desperate man riding out after a justice the law won't give him, unbooting his guns to make the New Mexico desert redder than ever.
