It is the continuing saga of Max Brand’s finest heroine, Jack – Jacqueline Boone. Jack is blessed and cursed by the cross of Meilan when she meets Dix Van Dyck. Dix Van Dyck, is being persecuted by an evil sheriff, named Onate. Dix, perhaps too fond of action and excitement, had stayed out of trouble on the strength of his boyish charm and the verdict of „suicide” passed on those who drew their guns on him. Strangely enough, it is Jackie Boone and a beautiful Yaqui Indian girl named Dolores, who has an evil side that come to Van Dyke’s aid repeatedly in a novel bursting with larger-than-life action.
