JOHNSTONE COUNTRY. RUSTLERS’ PARADISE.
An unholy trio of cutthroat rustlers turn a routine horse drive into an epic showdown between good and evil–with a little divine justice from gunfighting legend Perley Gates…
At first, the job sounds easy: lead a small herd of horses across the Arkansas-Texas border to the Double-D ranch near Texarkana. No problem–at least not for a man like Perley Gates. In fact, he’s looking forward to the 150-mile journey with his old sidekick Possum Smith and young Sonny Rice, and doesn’t expect any trouble along the way. Unfortunately, trouble has a way of finding Perley Gates. This time, it’s a trigger-happy trio of horse thieves who take one look at old Possum, young Sonny, and the low-key Perley, and decide they’re three very easy targets. But in the Old West, nothing comes easy. Except death… So begins one hell of a showdown. On one side are the forces of evil itself, with notorious gunslinger Spade Devlin gunning for blood. On the other side are a few good men, a town under seige–and a merciless angel of vengeance named Perley Gates…
