Joe Flint got up that morning to just another day in Greenville. But when you lived in a border town in New Mexico every day was different: this was going to be a bad one. Who was the dead man on the mysterious coach that rode into town? A coach that carried a badly injured woman and a crying child. Who was the drifter called Ty who came into town and who wanted to find out about the injured woman? When Flint tries to investigate the mystery merely deepens. He has to go to the nearby, prosperous town of Afton and find out if anyone there knows who the girl and the dead man. The investigation is simple enough yet he is soon dragged into a fight for his own life. But with the help of a stranger, Flint learns to fight back against the evil Jay Parker for the answers he so richly deserves.
