Plot Overview

Laurel Dewalt is the beautiful, calculating and greedy young wife of rich rancher Arnold Dewalt. She despises her marriage and dallies with almost any man, using them and then discarding them. When she runs from her husband she runs into the arms of Jess Harper, a man with whom she has a history with. Jess isn't happy to see her but finds himself believing her lies. He agrees to take her to Tumavaca and Slim Sherman isn't happy about Jess leaving, but can't stop him. There is an added complication, Arnold Dewalt has put bounty hunters on Laurel's trail and they aren't picky about who gets hurt as they trail their quarry. The road to Tumavaca holds more than one peril for Jess Harper.
