Hawkins finds out quickly that things are a lot more complicated then he thought. There's not one missing horse, but three, and there's a family of crooks that's trying to cover up their theft at all costs. This even includes murder. Hawkins tracks the thieves from England, to Kentucky, and then the Western United States, where they attempt to execute a cover-up.
