Kin had died for stolen Confederate gold. Surviving brother Buck Harlan, now released from jail, intends to find out who had sold them out and taken the gold .. and make him pay in blood. Enforcers Yancey Bannerman and Johnny Cato originally assigned to help Buck adjust to life as a freeman couldn't do a damn thing about it. That meant guns and fists would fly.
Johnny Cato followed a vengeance trail with one single purpose in mind: to kill the outlaw who’d brought his entire world crashing down around his ears. It turned the deadly custom-built handgun/shotgun they called the Manstopper into a reckless killing-machine as he tore a bloody trail through Texas. And it put him at odds with the man one he could always rely on: his partner, Yancey Bannerman.
