Storyline

Marshal Heck Lamson gets the drop on a murderous escaped prisoner in a dark hotel room. When the gunman reaches for a match in his pocket, Heck thinks he's going for his gun and winds up shooting the man in the back. The townspeople refuse to except Heck's explanation of his actions, so when two outlaws come looking to avenge their dead confederate, no one is willing to pin on a deputy badge - no one, but Clay McCord, that is. Written by David Bassler
