"Deputy Marshal Russ Sittell is on special assignment from the Texas Rangers to work with Vaughan Steele in putting a stop to the rampant rustling in Pecos County. But everyone knows that local rancher and mayor, Granger Longstreth, doesn't want any Ranger interference in his town. When Russ takes a job on Longstreth's ranch, he's able to learn exactly how the rancher operates - and he witnesses the growing tension between Longstreth and Steele. A tension that can lead only to trouble."--P.  of cover.
