A mysterious stranger struggles to keep his past a secret and himself out of harm's way in this thrilling Western tale!
Bob Bannister is a mystery from the moment he arrives in Prairie City. A gambler with a knack for winning at the stud poker table, he quickly aligns himself with a young man named Howard Marble after saving his life and helps to pay off Howard's gambling debts. Marble is connected to a number of the town's big shots, and Bannister quickly finds himself in the middle of everyone's business.

He draws suspicion from the locals, and while the sheriff is reluctant to suspect Bannister, the truth is that his background remains a mystery, and Bannister's vague answers and talents with a pistol aren't helping matters.
Caught up in a controversy over an irrigation project that threatens to siphon off all the water many local ranchers need for their cattle herds, Bannister is running out of friends to turn to. The threats continue to build, and surely a breaking point is approaching . . .
