The others on the train decide to settle near Helena, but Jamie decides to go on alone to reach his family's ranch in the Bitterroot Valley. When the young couple turn up missing, Jamie's older brother, Monroe, enlists the services of John Hawk, a trail-hardened army scout. Monroe finds out right away that he has made a wise choice.

NO JUSTICE IN HELL: April, 2018 - On his way back to Fort Ellis, renowned army scout John Hawk encounters three women on the Mullan Road, the road the army built from Fort Benton to Walla Walla in Washington Territory. It took only a glance to see the women had managed to get themselves in a fix, with one of their two horses dead, and the other one looking two spent to pull their wagon. He soon finds out that they are on the run from a cruel husband of one of the women, who has threatened to kill her. Hawk agrees to get them to Helena where they can find refuge in the Last Chance Saloon.
