U. S. Marshall Clay Hughes was only 25 years old; the youngest Marshall in the Service, but, thought by many, including his superiors, to be the best. He was lightning quick on the draw and deadly accurate with his Colt 45. Clay was a wealthy Rancher with a beautiful Wife, but his commitment to the Badge he wore, and his duty as a U. S. Marshall, always took precedence over his personal responsibilities. Relentless in the pursuit of Outlaws, a town tamer, and respected Lawman, his sense of justice was turned upside down when his Uncle Will Mitchell, his Mentor and Friend, was maliciously murdered by a Gunfighter. He laid aside his Badge and set out to kill a man.
