He would rather settle disputes without the use of guns! But, during his time in the West, a shooting was a simple way to resolve differences and this was accepted. Then times began to change; law and order were being sought for towns that were springing up in many Western Lands. Lawmen across the Western Lands began to communicate with one another to bring criminals to justice! Kilkenny respects law and order and attempts to change his identity so he can live in peace; this is only possible if others will allow him the opportunity.
He is also in love with a kind, beautiful woman but he is afraid to spend much time around her, since she could be killed because of him; because some young kid learns his true name and then decides he will kill Kilkenny so everyone will think he is "Bad Man," which really means that he is a bad man to mess with or he could kill you with a fast, accurate draw.
Nita Riordan, inherited a saloon when her father died. She either had to run the saloon to make a living or starve. A Yaqui Indian made a promise to her father that he would take care of Nita, which he does and, he feels Kilkenny is the man for Nita! Now if Kilkenny will stop being so pigheaded, he could end up with a stunning bride! Nita doesn't give up so easily and she has never been willing to cut Kilkenny out of her life regardless, of his fears!
This is another Louis L'Amour Winner! If not very careful, you may fall in love with Kilkenny yourself!

Bit like watching the last season of 'Game of Thrones' first the going back to watch the previous seasons.
But the gist of it is that the tales are well told and exciting and there’s a certain authenticity just from the life Lamour himself led.
Good value and good fun.
