After a long, successful fighting career, Iron Boyd Burgess decides to retire and settle in the small town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Unfortunately, the quiet life he hopes for doesn't materialize. When trouble hits (and there's a lot of trouble in this town), Boyd is usually the first one on the scene. This doesn't sit too well with local, long-tenured sheriff Butch Ray. When Boyd stumbles upon the trail of a series of brutal murders taking place nearby in the sands of New Mexico, he decides to find the killer. Sheriff Ray warns him to stop playing detective, but Boyd doesn't back down from fights, and this one is no exception. He's not about to let innocent lives be lost due to the sheriff's incompetence. The deeper into the investigation he gets, however, the more Boyd wonders if the sheriff is involved somehow. But how will he prove it without getting himself killed? One thing's for sure: Boyd is about to find what evils reside under the desert sun.
