The cattleman of the K Bar K and neighboring establishments have gotten together and drawn up a Death List. The ""Old Kings"" want the encroaching farmers out of No Man's Land and they've hired professional assassin Phil Huff, a psychotic range sniper, to do the dirty work. Frank Malverne finds his own name on the list and must get Huff before Huff get him. The deadline -- New Year's eve. Fast and exciting.
