Reprint.
Luke Kennick's got a lot to atone for -- namely the deaths of the cavalrymen he unwittingly led into a massacre. And for his sins, the haunted ex-soldier has agreed to return to the scene of the slaughter, as he secretly transports the renegade responsible through the Llano Estacado badlands en route to Fort Worth and prison. But there are three survivors of the bloody battle hot on Kennick's tail with vengeance in their hearts, and a war party of Comanche braves is riding close behind, determined to free their captive leader. Kennick knows his mission is probable suicide ... and he doesn't care. Until a desperate woman with nowhere else to go crosses his path, and suddenly Luke Kennick's got a cause to fight for again ... and a reason not to die hard in this hostile, godforsaken land.
