After leaving Sister Nadine and the other two nuns at the convent in Oklahoma Territory, Jess is back doing what he does best. He crosses back into Texas and heads to the town of Hoover, where he finds the man he’s hunting, Brian Reed.
While in Hoover, he meets a hired gun by the name of Vic Pardo. Pardo finds the man he was hired to kill and easily dispatches him to an early grave. Not having another job after that, he convinces Jess to let him ride along with him for a while to make some extra money. They make a good team and hunt down some stone-cold killers together.
Along the way, a fast draw expert from Boise, Idaho, confronts Jess. He wants to finish his unblemished career as an expert gunfighter by challenging Jess, but Jess quickly discovers that the gunfighter might love his whiskey more than his reputation.
Then comes Hell Town…
