A wanted man…
Lew Clennan has returned to his old town Tinkettle Basin with a price on his head and revenge on his mind.
After being wrongly accused of murder, Lew has bounty hunters on his trail and there are reward posters for his arrest all over the state.
But Lew has bigger things to worry about.
Gun-wielding land grabber Eli Brix and his gang have murdered Lew’s two brothers and father, mercilessly taking the land that the family had worked so hard to build up.
To make matters worse, Brix is building a mini-empire in Tinkettle country and Lew is running out of allies to help take him down.
Can Lew organize a revolt against Brix, whilst avoiding the hired bounties who are on his tail?
At least he has the old Swede Lars Lundgren on his side, who manages to throw the bounty hunters off Lew’s trail.
But when Brix hears that Lew Clennan is back in town, he recognizes the threat that Lew’s presence could cause.
Now, the risk of danger is even higher for Lew.
Not only is the law after him, but so is the lawless Brix, a man who tends to get his way through whatever means possible.
To make things worse for Lew, word on the street is that Brix’s takeover of his family land was an entirely legitimate process.
But Lew doesn’t believe it for a second, and is determined to get to the bottom of what really happened.
And what involvement does the mysterious woman with a Winchester have in all of this?
Lew Clennan, the Six-Gun Prodigal, has a mission on his hands and vengeance in his heart.
Will he be able to avenge his family and bring Brix down for good?
Or will the land grabber have his way again, and establish his control of Tinkettle Basin?
