The choice was simple. Professional fighting man Carter O'Brien could stick around Scot's Post, California, and risk taking a bullet in the back from a bully-boy with a score to settle... or he could ride up into the treacherous, winter-locked mountains on an impossible mission of mercy.
They both came down to the same thing - almost certain death. But because O'Brien had never been one to pass up a challenge, he chose the mountains.
The dangers were plenty - ambushers, marauding Indians, the worst kind of weather imaginable, and a silent, deadly killer. If he were to survive all that, O'Brien learned pretty quick that the job he'd signed on for would require all the cold steel he had in him.
