Bounty hunter and commissioned Texas Ranger Henry Elliot had followed the trail of Rafe Winston across seven states. Never thought to be of considerable intelligence, Winston continually frustrated Elliot by being one step ahead across valleys, deserts and towns. Petty theft, armed robbery and cold-blooded murder lay in the wake of Rafe Winston.
Professional tracker Rig Preston is recruited by Elliot to find Winston. On the stagecoach headed for home, Preston’s fiancé, Chianne LaCosta shoots and wounds Rafe Winston, one of the holdup men. The enraged Winston vows revenge and plots her torture in his hands.
Gunfighter and acquaintance Ginger Whelihan joins the team because he knows Winston can name Whelihan in more than a few criminal deeds. The gunfighter calls in reinforcements from south of the border which presents a unique law enforcement opportunity to Elliot.
Rancho del Oro is a wealthy, wine growing ranch in Southern California and home of Chianne LaCosta’s parents. She retreated there to recover her strength and shake the worry of a lethal outlaw bent on her destruction.
There was someone faster with a gun and deadlier than Winston calling the shots and Rancho del Oro becomes final stand for murderous revenge.
