When Jim Dunn, better known as the Kid, rode into his old hometown of Cairo, he figured he'd have to shoot fast. The folks there would most likely remember his saloon-wrecking sprees and hell-raising exploits. What the Kid didn't figure on was finding his father six feet under and his brand-new stepmother running the family ranch with an outlaw crew.Nobody, not even the Kid's girl, thought Jim could get the ranch back from the fast-drawing gang hired by his stepmother. But the Kid had swapped lead with the best of them in the three years he'd been tramping around all over the West. He didn't come back to Cairo looking for trouble, but he wasn't going to run from it either.And when his best friend took a bullet that was meant for him, the Kid got mad - mad enough to kill . . .
