Bloody Kansas 1872. Conroy McClure searches for his missing brother. However, at a remote inn, he becomes involved with an evil family, and in particular the she-devil of a daughter who snares men in a murderous web of sensuality. McClure, like so many others, is trapped. The local vigilantes storm the inn, intent on lynching the entire family. But the killers have fled, taking McClure with them. The evidence left buried in the adjacent orchard is totally damning: twelve bodies, naked and brutally mutilated, including a little girl who was clearly buried while still alive. But where have the murderers gone, and what is the fate of Conroy McClure? The truth is so incredible that it becomes lost, disbelieved, in myth, along with record of the final deathful duel that McClure fights to salvage his sanity and his life.
