Having been forced to kill a man in self-defense in town, back at camp Rowdy is faced with an ominous new drover who looks exactly like the man he killed in town! Rowdy, Hey Soos and Calhoun were in town to pick up supplies and some wired money. John Day holds up Rowdy, shoots Calhoun and is shot dead by Rowdy. Three days later when the trio return to the herd, they find Favor's newly hired drover Rivers, who has all the clothes, mannerisms and eerie mood of the dead John Day, but he shrugs off all questions. First, Rivers disturbs Calhoun so much that wounded Calhoun has a deadly relapse. Next, he frightens superstitious Hey Soos so much, that he is severely injured backing off over a cliff. Then he taunts Rowdy into a fight, hoping Rowdy will kill him and hang for it. It turns out that he is a long-thought-dead brother of John Day, and his future plans had depended on moving to new territory with the brother Rowdy killed. Written by chipe
