It was only a cast-off tin box. Tom Meredith little realized when he picked it up that he was to entrust to this small, insignificant vessel the secret of his own death - and that of his wife.
But these were not the only secrets it contained.
It held the key which unlocked the door to two mysteries: how June, Meredith’s daughter, was despoiled of her birthright; and how a conscienceless scoundrel, using every instrument in his grasp to extort the last vestige of profit from anyone he could get into his clutches, achieved his rise to wealth and power.
When we first hear of the little tin box, it is floating away on a flooded Texas river. An inscrutable destiny guides its course to an obscure resting place whence it is to emerge dramatically as if at the bidding of a hidden will, to bring justice to the wronged and retribution to the wrongdoer.
The setting for this eventful novel is the Texas of 1950’s with its spacious plains, herds of cattle and hidden wealth of black gold. Against a colorful panorama of ranch life there transpires a turbulent story of intrigue - with no holds barred - and of staunch loyalty between cowboy and employer.
And of course there is romance, as rivals contend for the love of the golden-haired June, each uses the weapons in which he is most skilled. Whether his tools are financial trickery and guile, expert bronc-busting and steer-roping, or adept handling of shooting irons, you will agree when Bill Shearn finally manages to put his brand on the quarry, that the best man wins.
The tin box, like a Pandora’s, unleashes a host of troubles but, like Pandora’s, it holds compensation, too.
