"Ken Rockland's number is up. After seven of prison, of not being a stoolie. But now his old gang has caught up to him. And they're not taking any chances. Riker, the gang's leader, stole Ken's gorgeous wife and now he wants to take his life. But Ken's chance upon a woman--a scarred, damaged woman. A woman with an opium addiction. A woman who may be the only hope that Ken Rockland has."
From the Estate of Charles Martignette.
