Times were hard after the war for Jace McCord. He had seen friends wounded and dead. He came home from the war to find his family gone and he didn’t know where to find them. He became very good with his gun, and men tried to kill him to build up their own reputations. Then he met Karen and they were married. They had a baby girl and a good life. But he came home from a couple of days of checking their cattle to find Karen and the baby dead. He spent two years searching for the men who had taken his life from him—drunk most of the time and working in saloons and stables to get enough money for food and something to drink. He met Jennifer, and his life turned around…but still men tried to kill him.
