By 1884, a new type of fencing called barbed wire-or, as ranchers deemed it, devil wire-is making more enemies than good neighbors in the American West. Jim Hartford, a failed farmer from Tennessee, is looking for a new beginning in Miles City, Montana. What he finds is a territorial disagreement that erupts in bloodshed. A local cattle baron has hired a renegade group of fence-cutters who turn out to be a band of grudge-holding murderers...and now it's up to Jim to put his life on the line not only to avenge the death of his brother, but to save the woman he loves from the deadly barbs of hatred and greed.
