When Caleb Black, preacher and bounty hunter, comes across two youths and the remains of a burnt-out farm, the explanation that four vicious outlaws were responsible seems entirely believable. Caleb goes off in pursuit, his prime motive being the $5,500 reward on the gang. However, nothing is what it seems, and Caleb is faced with some mystifying questions. Were the two boys as innocent as they seemed and who killed their father, mother and two sisters? It certainly would not be easy for Caleb to collect the bounty money and some folk said he would soon be preaching his last sermon!
