A drunken plan to make some quick money with two friends landed drifter Whit Ralston in the Yuma Territorial Prison—the worst prison in Arizona. Now he’s doing hard time in the inferno the inmates call the Hell Hole, counting the days until his release. He’s vowed never to do anything so stupid again, but that becomes a hard promise to keep when his crazy cellmate starts talking about a load of stolen gold stashed up in the mountains. When he falls for a beautiful, blue-eyed lady of the evening named Oleta who seems as taken with him as he with her, he realizes he might have a new reason to run some risks.
Once he gets out of prison, Whit starts making plans—but he’s going to have to make better choices about just who to believe in order for his latest scheme to hit pay dirt. People say a lot of things, especially when it’s money on the line. In the Old West, though, following the law is never as important as trusting the right people.
