Ironically, the curse was that people he cared about had bad things happen to them in his presence. The latest was when his daughter, taken hostage by a murderer, watched as three men were killed during her rescue.So Aaron became a recluse, avoiding the people he cared about in order to protect them. After three years of that, he was only a trigger squeeze away from permanently solving the problem. But an old friend tossed him a lifeline-- a temporary job as a small town deputy marshal. Knowing what was at risk, he nevertheless took the job.Surprisingly, things seemed to be going well, including his handling of a couple of situations that were ripe for disaster. Then, in an unprovoked but not random attack, his dog was killed and his women friend was left in a coma with a gunshot wound to the head.Aaron discovered the identity of the man behind the attack and, breaking a vow he made after Vietnam to never kill again, he swore vengeance. In the Malpais lava fields of western New Mexico, he laid the curse to rest.
