When word came through that two of the infamous Wallace brothers had been spotted in Indian Territory, Liberty Mercer, only the second woman ever to become a Deputy US Marshal, rode out to arrest them. But things didn't quite go according to plan and Liberty soon found herself left to die in the desert.

Fortunately, rescue came in the unlikely shape of a young girl named Clementina, who was on the run herself – from a brutal stepmother … who just so happened to be the matriarch of the Wallace gang.
Now, with the help of a railroad detective who's also after the outlaws, Liberty is determined to recapture the brothers and deliver them to Guthrie, where they'll be tried … and hung.
But Ma Wallace and her clan are determined to kill them before that happens, and it's up to Liberty to prove to her detractors that she's worthy of being a lawman!
