Growing up, Clarisse Ferris never expected the focus of her life would be vengeance. A child of a close family in the small town of Twin Arrows, Arizona, she knows that her life may be hard, but it turns out harder than she ever imagined.
She and her sister, Savannah, have honorable, hardworking parents. Their mother owns a saloon known as the High Heel Lady, and their father is the town sheriff. But one tragic day in the late 1800s, when the girls are away, a gang of outlaws known as the Wranglers rides into town.
At the end of a violent crime spree, Clarisse and Savannah are orphans. Their father had taught them both how to shoot a gun, but neither has ever taken a life with one. Clarisse swears an oath of vengeance against the Wranglers and leaves her old life and her sister behind. She becomes a bounty hunter, and a good one at that. She makes a name for herself, ridding the West of outlaws everywhere she goes.
After seven hard-fought and bloody years on the hunt, she returns home. Now a proven killer, she pins on her father's old star as the town's new sheriff. And there, on the same streets that once ran red with her parents' blood, she will face down their killers-and fulfill the promise she made on her parents' graves so long ago. The town of Twin Arrows will never be the same.
