Publisher's Summary

The story was that Eli Patterson had died in a gunfight, but Mike Shevlin knew it couldn't be true: The man who'd been like a father to him had been a Quaker. But when Shevlin rides back to Rafter Crossing to uncover the truth, he finds that the quiet ranching community has become a booming mining town. Newfound wealth has not made Rafter a peaceful place, however, and the smell of fear and greed is thick in the air. As Mike Shevlin tries to unravel the mystery of Patterson's death, he is led deeper and deeper into a conspiracy that controls not only the fate of Rafter Crossing but the heart of a beautiful but tormented young woman - and Shevlin's own destiny.

I really enjoyed the story but the cursing was very unnecessary, it would help him better without it

Probably Louis L'amour's best story.

Most of L'amour's stories don't have good endings, this one is an exception and exceptional.
