The grim order tenderfoot Shelton Sherman was given shortly after he took a job at Sunbeam Racnch was simple: "If he comes, shoot!" But did shooting make sense? Could bullets down a ghost? While riding in the hills, Sherman had come upon tracks that were neither animal nor human. Then, a flock of sheep was killed by having their necks twisted. Days later, a sheepman's neck was broken the same way. Terror spread over the entire range. Some ranchers branded Alec Vurney, owner of the Sunbeam and a hater of sheepmen, as the murderer. But that did not explain the weird cries that echoed from the hills or the ugly shape that drifted through the night. Sherman rode to find an explanation. It was a ride that brought him to a monster and close to death!
