Tough, lusty Catlow is fast on the draw and even faster when it comes to making a dollar. He's also a wanted man. The Mexican Army is after him. So is his hellcat girlfriend, an Indian war party, a vengeful killer and several hotheaded cowpokes from Catlow's outlaw gang. With enemies like these, it's a good thing Marshal Ben Cowan is around. The marshal is Catlow's best friend, and he'd ride through rattlesnakes to rescue his besieged buddy. Because Cowan wants the pleasure of putting Catlow behind bars all to himself.
