In this brand-new, suspenseful Ralph Compton Western, a reformed gambler turned lawman races to unmask a murderer.
In an effort to settle down, gambler Tom Calvert and his young protégé, Asher Smith, complete a long and arduous journey to Friendly Field. This Quaker community welcomes them with open arms, and soon Tom takes it upon himself to become a sort of lawman for them—as peaceful, nonviolent folk, they have no one to defend them.
Then an elder of Friendly Field turns up dead, and the townsfolk start whispering of witchcraft. Tom and Asher must solve a gruesome crime before the community of Friendly Field becomes a blood bath.
