When Harvey Palmer and Deputy Jesse Thompson meet they already have one thing in common: a deranged outlaw named Howdy Baxter. Harvey killed Baxter's brother, and Baxter wants revenge. Jesse's orders from Judge Randolph Martin are to bring Baxter in, and failure is not an option. As if their lives weren't complicated enough Baxter kidnaps Lila Foster, the love of Harvey's life, and Kitty Moynahan, a rancher's daughter who Jesse has fallen in love with at first sight. The two men team up and with a half Irish, half Apache and Chinese ace in the hole they take on Baxter and his men in a fight to the death in an abandoned ghost town to save the women they love.
