After years of struggling with grief and disillusionment, James Hunter returns to the small Montana town where his life took its dramatic turn. He finds that Brago has become a boom town and is overrun with prospectors and the sort of human vultures who prey upon them.
The territory is terrorized by a gang of murderous outlaws called The Blameless. Anyone with a few dollars in his pocket becomes their victim, and they do not leave witnesses behind.
Hunter experiences one attempt upon his life after another. Everyone seems to want him dead. Even a beautiful young woman tries to kill him. When the Blameless target him and the eccentric rancher who has taken him in, their only hope is to lure them into a final confrontation on the same killing ground where Hunter's life nearly ended, years before.
