From the moment he pins his father’s bloodied star on his chest, John Simms fulfills his calling as sheriff, hunts his father’s killer, and eludes the U.S. marshal who hunts the sheriff for the bounty on his head levied because he maintains two families. Over four years, the sheriff brings the killer to justice and stays a step ahead of the marshals with his fallen-away Mormon deputies. When the deputized Judases capture Simms, his community engineers his escape.
Follow Sheriff Simms while legislation dissolves his church and transfers its property to the government. Learn whether the murderer ever stands before the firing squad, and the sheriff lives free, no longer a fugitive.
