Ben Stark and Vince Peters are gunfighters by trade.
Nothing could separate them.
Until they arrive in the small cow-town of Trail’s End and Stark falls for the reverend’s daughter, Rachael Owens.
With their paths beginning to split, Stark finds himself elected marshal of the town – while Peters turns down the role of deputy, choosing to ride on alone with a bitter chip on his shoulder.
Campaigning to secure peace in Trail’s End, Stark orders all guns to be laid down.
It takes a while, but he begins to gain the respect and even a little admiration from the local cow-hands.
With the exception of one man.
Jerry Waldo is the self-styled boss of Trail’s End and Stark’s rival for Rachael’s affections. He makes it his sole adjective to run Stark out of town – by any means possible.
Waldo knows just who to call: Stark’s former friend, Vince Peters.
Hurt by the betrayal of his only friend, Peters has become an outlaw and mean killer.
And when Stark and Peters finally meet in a brutal showdown, it’s not as Gun Brothers – but as outlaw and lawman.
