Legendary hero John Stranger is called in to track the “ghost” of a
murderer he captured three years earlier, in Butte, Montana — a man who
had vowed to come back from the grave to kill the judge, the jury,
Sheriff Johnson … and John Stranger. Now, the jury members are turning
up dead, and the people of Butte fear that Payton has come back to have
his vengeance. Crow Indian legend indicates that the killer has come
back as a snow ghost — a human-shaped shadow that can be seen moving
amid the falling snow. Certain that the killer is no phantom, the
Stranger sets out to find the true murderer and bring him to justice.
