Chisholm is a Rim planet where filthy rich cattle barons and poor struggling sheep herds are having a range war. It's a familiar western movie trope: The cattle barons have large herds and don't want to share the grazing land. They've employed some pretty viscious gunmen to take out the competition, and since they control the sheriff and the judges, they are able to get away with murder.
The smaller cattle outfits and the sheep farmers have had enough when they start shooting people in the back and burning down their homes, and decided to hire some help. They get together and answer an ad for a Kobani business called Have Genes, Will Travel.
Nathan and Kit decide to answer the call for help, and head for Chisholm, where they are met at the landing pad by a group of killers. Of course, they manage to impress the killers with their unusual skills. The wealthy cattle barons then attempt to hire Nathan and Kit for their side, but when they fail, decide to have them ambushed and killed instead.
Clearly, they don't know who they're dealing with!
This is a great story with the kind of storyline you would expect in an old western movie -- complete with a beautiful madam -- but with all the modern sci fi elements you expect from Steve Bennett. I found it hugely entertaining.
Highly Recommended for: People who love sci fi and/or sci fi/western mashups! Or anyone who enjoys a slick caper job with lots of plot twists, and a very large, very pissed off blue 'tiger.'
