When the going gets tough the men who are being hunted turn into the hunters. A young man is suspected of a crime that he denies, but he has a secret that can't be revealed. He has nothing to do with those who want to kill, but young Wheeler has a secret that will turn not just his world upside down if it is revealed but that of other people. One of them is Betsy, young daughter of the Brand household, keeping a simple guest house catering for cowboys and travellers in the territory of Wyoming.
Will James, the hard man of the district who has been away making his fortune, returns to find that his younger brother has been killed under mysterious circumstances - and he is prepared to kill anyone who has harmed the last remaining member of his family. When Wheeler is accused of a terrible crime, Will can help. However, when a person goes on the run, hard questions are asked about the man who helps the fugitive. Deception piles on deception in a story where no-one can really be trusted... even the hero.
