Cattle drovers waiting to deliver their beef to the railhead at Gloribee are making life miserable for the townspeople, but Jim Hardie won't accept the stock until they're cleared by a veterinarian. The local doctor died under suspicious circumstances and Hardie convinces his son, also a vet, to examine the stock and help solve the older man's death.

Dear Jim, you scoundrel, what's going on? Greg Stringer my trail boss, of course. Big, hard, honest and mean - mean enough to handle available saddle scum on a drive. Arriving soon as possible with a more thorough description of him... and a real thorough description of you.
