Colorado Territory is in the midst of a struggle for statehood in 1876; at the same time the United States is in the midst of a Presidential Election. It would prove to be perhaps the most corrupt election in U.S. history. Some newspapers made jest of the new President Elect, naming him "Rutherfraud" B. Hayes. Politics makes for strange bedfellows and few partnerships could be stranger than that of the ex-butcher from the mean streets of Chicago, Dane Larsen, and the aging Cheyenne Dog Soldier, Red Elk, a member of the Reservation Police.
Dane Larsen is the son of immigrants, born in Chicago, and raised near the Union Stockyards. As a toddler he was entertained by tales of Vikings and rievers. The tales of raiding Vikings seemed far more appealing than following in his father's footsteps working as a butcher for the meat-packing industry. Drifting west to escape the killing floor, he discovers a new type of killing floor in the wide open spaces. The bounty hunter has a quick temper and a Sharps Big .50. Anyone gunning for Dane Larsen better not miss.
No longer believing the Cheyenne can stem the rising tide of settlers that invaded their traditional homeland, Red Elk merely wants his people to be able to survive the flood. Investigating the murder of his cousin, he discovers a plot suggesting that his people are going to be sacrificed for political gain in the upcoming Territorial election. Dane's Law is a story that invites you to ride along with the butcher-turned-bounty-hunter, Ivarr "Dane" Larsen and the Cheyenne warrior as they join forces to try to unravel the riddle of why someone wants Dane Larsen dead, and who stands to benefit by creating an all-out war between the Cheyenne and the citizens of the Territory!
