It starts as a mission to honor a fallen comrade. It becomes a mission for justice.
On a personal journey to return an heirloom to the father of his former colleague and lover, Jim Grant isn't sure what to expect in the dusty flatlands of Texas. He isn't expecting trouble from the local cowboys, but trouble is what he gets. With instincts honed from years as a covert operator, Grant is a small town's last hope against an army of good old boys and a violent kingpin who has everything to lose. And if he manages to keep his boots above ground he may just be able to lay to rest the memory of a soldier who died too soon.
