“Ryker” opens with a dramatic plea: “Your brother Tom has been hurt. He’ll never walk again. I think you ought to come and do your share.” With these words from Tom’s wife‚ Jake Ryker’s freedom came to an end. He is forced to take on the responsibility of a cattle ranch he had never wanted‚ to deal with a brother and sister-in-law he could not abide.
In “Law Comes to Lawless” John Glyde needs money in order to buy a ranch and the town of Lawless needs a lawman for which it is willing to pay a princely sum. On the trail into Lawless Glyde finds the trail blocked by Cole Wescott’s gunmen. Wescott is the owner of Spade Ranch‚ as well as the man who originally named the town Lawless — and it is his intention that the town will continue to live up to its name.
