Cade Cain was back in town after two years in a Communist prison camp. His first night home he’d been beaten by a sadistic hoodlum and warned to get out of town fast. Now someone had planted a bullet-riddled corpse on his doorstep.

Three people in town hated him - his greedy ex-wife, her wheeler-dealer boyfriend, and the big muscle man in the local mafia. But which of them ordered murder - and signed Cade’s name to the tab?
