Marshal Pratt is sent to bring back three escaped convicts--on his own. His territory is about half a planet of desert wasteland. He can do this but he'll need some luck and some help. More
Three convicts escape into a vast desert wasteland. Pratt is assigned to bring them back. By himself. The law has not quite brought complete order to this half of the planet so Pratt is very much on his own. There are good people and some very nasty people. His job is to deal with both. Recently, widowed, alone in a hostile environment, the marshal will just have to do the best he can. His best is very good, but sometimes very good isn't good enough.
