Mayhem, murder and a maverick sheriff in what was surely the craziest and wildest plot Blade ever got mixed up in. Lawmen and outlaws want his hide as he moves in the shadow of the hangman's noose.
JOE BLADE - an unwilling killer, hunted and betrayed
LAFE OLAFSON - sheriff, Blade's boyhood friend. He hunted Blade as ruthlessly as he would a mad dog.
EARL WANNAKER - multi-millionaire and girl-stealer. A man of no morals and less conscience.
KID WANNAKER - his wild son. Crazy as his father. He thought Blade was too old and too slow
NELL - an outlaw's woman who stood between Blade and a cut throat
LIAM SHANDY - mad Irish king of the Border smugglers
HOLLY GOODCHILD - who always smiled and carried death wherever he went.
A violent and fast-moving climax to Joe Blade's cyclonic career.
