Summary, etc.:
"Smoke Jensen is mighty proud of his son Louis for finishing law school. But he can't help being a little disappointed that Louis isn't returning to the Sugarloaf Ranch. Instead, he's setting up his own law practice in nearby Big Rock--a career choice that turns out to be every bit as dangerous as fending off cattle rustlers. The boy's first case lands him smack in the middle of a heated dispute between two riled-up ranchers over water rights. If Louis can't settle them down, the whole thing could blow up into a bloody range war. Then a scheming con man shows up in town to stir up trouble--and ends up dead. Now Louis has to defend his sister's boyfriend on murder charges. What s worse, the real killer is still out there. And he's ready to slaughter again . . . Smoke Jensen's son may be a lawyer now. But if there's one thing he learned from his daddy, it s that in places like Big Rock, men live and die by one law alone: the law of the gun . . ."-- Provided by publisher.
