Dispatched to the territory of New Mexico, Harry Raines and his partner Joseph Boston Leahy have been assigned to uncover how the Confederate Nation plans to expand its domain all the way west to California. Awaiting their arrival in Santa Fe is their contact Don Luis Almaden y Cortes, the Union army's key asset in its struggle to stop the Rebels at Glorieta Pass. Separated from Leahy, Harry makes his own way to Santa Fe, only to discover that Almaden has been murdered - and his partner stands accused of the crime. Now, with the help of Almaden's striking, strong-willed daughter, and an Indian scout he befriended in the desert, Harry must root out the real killer, clear Leahy's name, and gather the intelligence Almaden had that was vital to the Union cause.
