VENGEANCE IS COMING.
Flintlock takes no pleasure in killing. But when his pal O'Hara gets bullwhipped by a trio of lowdown prairie rats, Flintlock finds sanctuary for his wounded friend at the cabin of a kindly miner and his lovely daughter. Flintlock heads out to hunt down some food. But there's more than just deer lurking in these woods. A bloodthirsty band of eight savage raiders--led by a half-mad gunslinger called The Old Man of the Mountain--wage a full-scale attack on the miner's cabin. By the time Flintlock returns, O'Hara's been beaten, the miner's been shot, and the daughter's been kidnapped . . .
It gets worse. The Old Man plans to make the young beauty his bride. But Flintlock has a plan, too. It's not just a rescue mission. It's a vengeance ride--leading to one bloody showdown that'll go down in history . . .
