Road to Cimarron

Modestus McDoon has just been expunged from his gang. After a fellow gang member, Smiley, nearly stabbed him to death in the night, he’s on his own and alone in Cimarron, New Mexico.

A rancher has taken him in, but McDoon knows he soon must leave before his gang, the law, or worse finds him.

Sheep in the Flock

Modestus McDoon returns to Cimarron, despite being told to stay away. He reunites with his old ex-gang friends, Rosita and Maurice, only to be hired to help save their inn.

Things turn sour as McDoon pretends to be a priest, he dodges old enemies, and, worst of all, a head turns up on a pike in the middle of town.
