His boss sent him to investigate the case of Gordy Morgan, a kid who had disappeared after killing the son of a powerful and unscrupulous rancher a couple of months earlier in the small town of Lark, Colorado. The Trinidad Weekly Tribune had picked up the story, but it seemed there was more to the story than what was being reported. The Tribune was comparing Gordy to Billy the Kid and was after the sheriff's hide for not apprehending him. They had given Gordy the name the Trouble Kid. The boss had warned Curran to take his handgun and his Winchester because he had a hunch that might wind up in a pot of trouble. Unfortunately for Curran, the boss's hunch proved to be true. Saul Pettit, whose son was killed, is determined to find Gordy and kill him and he doesn't want anyone getting in his way or digging into the details of the shooting. Curran is attacked his first night in town and now he is not just a reporter, he's part of the story. In a desperate race against time and hired guns, Curran is determined to get to Gordy first and see that he gets justice -- whatever that might be.
