Caine breaks out of a Fort Pike jail. Chained to him is another prisioner, Huntoon - a hulking brute of a man charged with murder. As the two escape into the hills, Caine has a use for his unique powers. He must tame the beast in the heart of the man who is chained to him. And he must outwit the man who, with animal cunning, is tracking him down.
