Kidnapped at the age of sixteen, Maggie O'Bannen has survived the fickle temper of notorious outlaw Mad Dog Frank O'Bannen for seven years. Now he is dead and she is about to find out that there are worse ways to live and die than as the wife of a wanted man. Maggie has Frank's gun, her keen wits but will they be enough to save her from the brutality of a maniac bent on revenge?
