When Belle Boyd, the Rebel Spy, learned of a plot to organize the Southern States in an attempt to secede from the Union, she faced a problem. During the War Between the States, she had rendered loyal service to Dixie. At its end, she had taken the oath of allegiance to the Union and was now a trusted member of the U.S. Secret Service. Any clash of loyalties was averted when the Frenchman, a leader of the Brotherhood for Southron Freedom, caused the deaths of two of Belle's friends. The Rebel Spy swore that she would avenge them...Even if it had to smash the Brotherhood to do it!

To Gavin Gartree's bunch of hardcases, "work" was a cussword, "innocent" was a come-on, and a young pilgrim girl was an invitation to a molestation. But nothing was quite as it seemed. For a start, the young pilgrim girl in question was accompanied by a small and seemingly inconsequential Texan by the name of Dusty Fog. But that was the thing about Dusty Fog. Though small in stature, he was a giant when it came to fighting, and he always made his first shot the last shot as well.

Out in Wyoming it took a brave man –or a fool – to tangle with a cougar. In a land where men faced death readily, where lead flew with deadly accuracy, the speed and power of the cougar, or mountain lion, were to be respected and feared.If a cougar or an old grizzly was prowling around, there was only one thing to do – send for Scobie Dale, the man with the specialized knowledge and equipment which most ranchers lacked, the man they called the hound dog man.

In 1873 Sebastian Lerdo de Tejada became President of Mexico. In the same year the Colt factory at Hartford, Connecticut, produced a new revolver. They called it the Model P and gave no thought to a better name. It became the best and most reliable fighting handgun of its age, rugged, powerful and hard hitting. Dusty Fog bought a matched brace of the new Colts ... Down in Mexico there was trouble, and an old friend of the Ysabel Kid disappeared, believed murdered by the revolutionaries. That brought Dusty Fog, Mark Counter, the Ysabel Kid and Waco into Mexico. When they returned, those new Colt guns bore a name—men called them the Peacemakers....

The Palo Duro was bad country: dry as the rattlesnakes that owned it, mean as the Comanches who ruled it, wild as the outlaw town of Hell that was its capital. Dusty Fog had ridden in and shot his way back out again. But had left behind men and women at the mercy of the Kweharehnuh Comanches. Bad men, who had committed almost every kind of crime, and women who were not much better, it is true. That did not stop Dusty feeling concerned for their safety. So the Rio Hondo gun wizard decided that he must go back to Hell. Despite all the dangers which doing so entailed, the Ysabel Kid and Waco insisted upon accompanying him. The mysterious man called Break O'Day rode with them—but he intended to be the only one to come out of Hell alive.

A mercenary General in Mexico offered to use his army for the Confederate cause. Belle Boyd, the Rebel Spy, received orders to deliver $15,000.00 as payment for his services. Helping her rode two tough Texans, the Ysabel Kid and his father. Matched against them were the United States Secret Service, determined to prevent the delivery; the French, who wanted the gold for Maximilian; Mexican supporters of Juarez who saw it as a way of freeing their country from foreign domination; and, when word of it leaked out, the worst rabble of murderous thieves the bloody border between Texas and Mexico ever saw.

The pattern was always the same when "the Bad Bunch" made their raids. They chose their time when there was a county fair, or some such diversion, to take folks minds off the protection of their property. Then they'd start a fire in another part of town, so that all the local lawmen and officials would have their hands full with that. Then they'd move in on their chosen target.To catch them seemed easy enough for Dusty Fog, Mark Counter and the Ysabel Kid. All they had to do was wait for a county fair, watch out for a fire, and then make sure they were at the bank in time to stop the planned robbery.But even the floating outfit found the Bad Bunch a mite trickier than expected!

Captain Dusty Fog and the Ysabel Kid had heard some shaggy tales before, but this one took the prize. Some fancy Easterners were determined to save the noble buffalo from the Indians. To do it they wanted Dusty and his Texans to make a trail drive to a safe range--a trail drive of bison.The only trouble was, Dusty and his comrades hadn't heard the half of it. The Easterners had a secret scheme up their sleeve, and it didn't have anything to do with saving buffalo. Now the Texans were heading off into a storm of dust, trouble, and blood that would begin with an ambush and end up in a town called Hell. And before it was over, the Texans would do the one thing they were sure would fix the situation: pick up their guns and fight!

Somebody had a smart idea to end the Civil War. Flood the Southern States with counterfeit money and destroy their already weakened economy. Unfortunately one of the first consignments of bad money fell into the hands of a man who understood its meaning. General Ole Devil Hardin knew the forging plant must be destroyed; but it was situated in New Orleans, far inside Union-controlled territory. Only an expert could reach the plant; one who knew the South and how to survive in enemy country without being detected. The expert Ole Devil sent was a slim, beautiful woman. Although the Yankees knew her name, they could not place her face. So Belle Boyd went with Dusty Fog on the dangerous mission. That was her job, her way of life. They called her the Rebel Spy.
