When Angus Murchie, son of a Scotch father and an Indian mother, came to the trading post run by his father, the old Scot told him that treacherous Jacques Larue, a rival trader and a whiskey smuggler, had tried to murder him and would probably try again. Knowing the wild blood that flowed in young Angus veins, Colin Murchie made his son promise that even if Larue succeeded, Angus would not kill him personally, but would help the law seek vengeance. Angus reluctantly agreed.The next day the old man was shot down in cold blood by Larue, and Angus, true to his word, had to hold his fire.Corporal Downey of the Mounted took charge, and Larue was tried in Edmonton.

The murderer won acquittal. The jury preferred a white mans word to that of Angus, a halfbreed. Outside the courtroom, Angus told the sneering Larue that no amount of lying could save him from paying the penalty for his crime. Downey saw the leer die form the mans eyes and a flash of fear replace it before Larue hurried away.Larue returned to the North, but terror clung to him. Demoniacal laughter echoed in the stillness around his campfire.

Guns disappeared. Food and whiskey caches were destroyed. His Indians, afraid, deserted him. Great black eyes watched him out of the night. He couldnt sleep.How Angus creates a psychological world of horror to destroy the murderer is a tale of revenge you will long remember.-from the dust jacket
