Discovered centuries before by a Spanish explorer, Vegas Springs had acquired the status of a myth, its very existence questioned and its precise location unknown except to a few Indians and the occasional lucky traveller who stumbled upon it. In the midst of the desert it had one redeeming feature: life-giving water. Seb Ashton was one of those lucky ones. With hardcases on his tail he had fled into the desert, only finding out too late that wandering in a scorching hellhole with an empty canteen was no escape. Now the fabled watering hole could prove his salvation. However, his ruthless pursuers had been determined enough to follow him across the desert wastes and Ashton knew he must face a showdown - in the blistering sands of Vegas.
