John "Shotgun" Bishop has tangled with plenty of lowlifes in his time--and he's got the missing limb to prove it. But few sink as low as his own brother Devlin, a crazy-mean cuss who'd steal the horns off the devil himself. This time, Dev's got his cold black heart set on taking over John Chisum's land, destroying the cattle king's dream of building a new town and laying down tracks for the railroad. So Chisum hires Shotgun and his Cheyenne partner, White Fox, to protect his investment. But when the Bishop family feud turns into an all-out turf war, Shotgun ends up on the wrong side of the law--stuck in the middle between the devil he knows and two deadly new players. Their names are Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett.
