The parched dusty streets of the Old West carried
many a threat for an unwary traveler but none more dangerous than the evil
that stalked the night-darkened alleys of Mascarada, New Mexico. Hiding in
shadow, slashing and ripping the flesh of young women and leaving behind
their mutilated bodies, the Mascarada Ripper vanishes into the night like
a ghost. But when a young outlaw is offered a pardon to bring the killer
to justice dead or alive, he finds himself confronted with the horrors of
his own past and the loss of the very thing he sought to protect by running
from Mascarada years before.
