The Ager Coffee-Mill Gun was the first successful automatic-fire weapon, the most deadly innovation to warfare since the discovery of gunpowder. One of these guns was in the hands of a pair of fanatical Union supporters and the use to which they intended to put it turned Lieutenant Jackson Marsden, West Point honour cadet, into a deserter from his regiment and a traitor to the Union cause. It also caused Captain Dusty Fog of the Texas Light Cavalry to be sent from his command with orders to capture the gun at all costs. Two young men, one in Confederate gray, the other wearing Union blue, rode three hundred miles with danger and death lurking every inch of the way. At last Dusty Fog stood with his two Army Colts pitted against the fanatics and their Devil Gun... with the lives of every man, woman and child in Texas forfeit if he should fail!
