Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

After visiting his late mother's people on the Mescalero reservation, Comanche tribal policeman Daniel Killstraight waits to catch a train home when local cowboys bring disturbing news to southern New Mexico Territory: a Chiricahua Apache has brutally murdered a teenage girl in the railroad town of Deming -- and a bunch of locals plan on lynching the Indian. Killstraight has no jurisdiction in this territory. He doesn't really care much for Apaches anyway. He knows nothing about Deming, the murdered girl, or the accused killer. Yet, still heart-broken over the death of his beloved Rain Shower, he is in no hurry to return home. So he hops a train for Deming to help a fellow Indian.
