The Stevens’ peaceful and quiet life on the Lazy Mare Ranch in Powder Valley came to an abrupt and violent end when they learned why the Suttons couldn’t come for dinner. First, Pat Stevens’ disreputable but goodhearted cronies, Sam and Ezra, showed up with a terrifying letter from Dusty Canyon. Next, without warning, a black-hooded rider thundered into the Lazy Mare and thrust a crudely scrawled note into Pat’s hand.
The two notes dynamited Pat and his pals into a deadly battle against the gang of hooded robbers, a battle which turned out to be a fight for their own lives as well as for those of their friends.
