Summary:   Hoss Cartwright was very proud to be able to tell his family that he would be assisting as the new temporary deputy sheriff whilst Clem was away.

At first he thinks he will be able to get back at all those times his seventeen year old brother Joe Cartwright for his jokes and pranks by locking him up in one of the cells for a minor offence.

But when a more serious matter arises in town and loyalties are divided and evidence points strongly in the direction of his younger brother’s involvement, will he be able to put aside his family ties and service justice as he swore to do.

More importantly, will he be able to repair the rift with his brother over not believing his innocence when an angry Joe heads into danger to prove that he wasn’t guilty.
