Yancey Bannerman's brother, Chuck, was the black sheep of the family. That's why their father, business magnate C. B. Bannerman sent him to Texas on a cattle-buying trip. He figured that Chuck would either come good and buy all the stock needed ... or he'd give in to the lure of wicked women and strong liquor and squander all the money C. B. had entrusted to him. No one expected Chuck to end up bucking a ruthless syndicate and its gun-swift killers. Yancey Bannerman, the top Enforcer for the Governor of Texas, had no great love for his brother, but blood was blood, and when Chuck reached out for help, Yancey couldn't refuse him. But in taking on the syndicate alone, he was putting his own life on the line. And the syndicate gunmen always played for keeps.

A king's ransom in gold had was stolen in a violent bank-raid right in the heart of San Francisco, and the President himself gave orders for Yancey Bannerman to retrieve it. That meant going up against a kill-crazy outlaw named Brad Stewart, and Stewart's own personal bodyguard, a fellow-psychopath called Catlin, who claimed to be the toughest man in Texas. With Yancey's partner, Johnny Cato, on a mission up in Canada, Yancey would have to face the outlaws alone. But that was just fine with him ... because the bank Stewart had robbed was owned by his father, C.B.

Fortunately, Yancey was around to fight off the bushwhackers, but there was still a mystery to be solved. Who were the would-be killers, and why did they want C.B. dead? In the end there was no shortage of suspects, but to get to the bottom of it all, Yancey needed help.

"Yancey Bannerman is a homicidal maniac!" said the Texas Ranger. "He's killed two of my men, slugged a couple, and another man was wounded at the stables. He's also stolen horses, not to mention taking hostage the daughter of one of your top-ranking senators. Hell, the man has to be stopped at all costs."The truth of it was that Governor Dukes' top Enforcer was a sick man, suffering from headaches caused by an old scalp wound. But that didn't change the facts.Dukes turned his lined and weary face to Yancey's best friend and fellow Enforcer, Johnny Cato."Find him, John. I don't care how you do it—but track him down."Cato nodded soberly. "Yes, sir."Dukes looked at him steadily for a long moment, then added quietly, "And when you find Yancey, John ... I want you to kill him."

Governor Dukes aimed to open up the border country to white settlement as a way to stop Mexico from trying to annex the Lone Star State. But to do so, he first had to give the Kiowa Indians a place to live. The Kiowas wanted the lush Pecos Valley.

So they set about doing everything they could to prevent the Governor's top Enforcer, Yancey Bannerman, from fetching Red Dog to Austin to discuss terms.In the meantime, Yancey's partner, Johnny Cato, was trying to track down a stolen Gatling gun. Somewhere along the corpse-littered trail their paths would cross, and then they'd be in for the fight of their lives against a cold-blooded killer known as ... Edge!

They came out of the mountains, a tight-riding bunch just like a breath from the past in their blood-stiff, stained and reeking buckskins. They all wore beaver tail caps, and their hair was shoulder-length, their features almost completely hidden behind bushy, matted beards. They were the Buckskinners, and they robbed and often killed to get what they wanted. But now it seemed that they'd gone into the kidnapping business, and the husband of the beautiful woman they'd abducted was very specific about what he wanted Yancey Bannerman and Johnny Cato to do about it. If possible, they were to save his wife. But one way or the other, they were to kill the Buckskinners—every last one of them.
