Florence Jones is the widow of a Civil War hero that takes in an injured soldier from the opposite side that has found his way onto her farm. For the next few weeks, Florence lived with a constant fear of being discovered. She could no longer hear the cannon fire from the front lines, but she knew it was there. Was it moving away from her or creeping closer like some sort of silent killer? It worried her because she had grown fond of Linus and she did not want him to be taken away. She did not fear her own punishment but his... For she was falling in love with this man in the gray uniform... But what happens when her family finds out?
With the judge, the prosecutor, the sheriff, his deputies, and ever gunslick and gunslinger they had sent his way now dead, that included everyone he felt responsible for sending him to Yuma Prison. His revenge was complete. He hadn't given much thought to the jury. He had merely assumed they had been deceived by the same dirty system. That was until they begin rearing their heads. For some reason, it seems one is intent on killing him. That's another problem he'll have to take care of.
