Davrum Deeks, the longtime blacksmith of the Broken J Ranch knows there's a darker side to every town but has seldom been confronted with it. Living far from any real civilization for so long he's almost forgotten the pain humans can inflict on their own kind. At least until he comes face to face with a fallen woman in a dark alley. No longer wanted by society's lowest establishments Dusty Ray is left for dead in a cold dark back street in Casper Wyoming, and knows she has come to the end of the line. It will only be a matter of time before it's all over and she welcomes the relief of death, as she huddles for warmth among the refuse and detritus of a growing town. When two strong hands suddenly grasp and lift her from her mire she tries to resist, but is too weak to fight back as the old man carries her off for his own. Seeking only to save a forgotten soul, can Deeks uncover the girl who was once called Rachel or will she always retreat behind the granite wall that blocks her off from the rest of the world?
