Bound to a wheelchair, with only a few weeks to live, she informs him that a vicious gang of outlaws has kidnapped her daughters and granddaughters from their ranch in Las Vegas, New Mexico Territory. The oldest daughter is the baby girl he deserted twenty years earlier to fight for the Union against the rebels; the younger daughter, sired by a second husband, has been either murdered or sold into prostitution, her prepubescent granddaughters traded to an Apache band taking refuge in the mountains north of Las Vegas. Reminding John Henry of the promise he made to her twenty years ago, Benevolence demands that he hunt down the kidnappers, kill them all, and rescue the women and girl.
