Few things worried the famed Gene Adams, but to get messages from a dead man was different. But before he has time to act, Bar 10 is suddenly attacked and all the signs are that somehow the Rattler survived the hangman's rope and is now responsible for the massacre of Adams' loyal hands.
Gene, though, is not easily intimidated and he vows that, come hell or high water, he will solve the mystery and bring the murderers to justice—whoever they may be.
