Denver Wildfire is a hard man whose looks may not amount to much but he’s smart, literate and ex-military.... and he has a plan.
He rides with the Mexican, a good man with a long match and short fuse, and the kid, a wild card who can drive a six-team like the devil himself. All three are intent on stepping into a lucrative honeypot left by friction between the Sioux and the US army after the massacre at Little Big Horn.
A deadline is set and Denver must make his move, the scheme only complicated by the advent of another man’s fine looking wife. Her passion has turned Denver’s head and it’s a matter of setting his complicated plan in motion without this new distraction, the military and the Indians getting in the way.
The prize is a fortune; the price is in bullets and blood.
