(From the publisher):
The Piasa bird is a bizarre buzzard with antlers like a deer, a beard like a lion, a body covered with scales - and damned if Clint Adams didn't catch a glimpse of it along the Mississippi. His curiosity about the mysterious legend leads him to Alton, Missouri, where a lovely but bashful librarian is willing to answer his questions, and the Law is eager to ask them - not about some fool bird, but about a killing.
The Piasa bird may be a myth, but there's nothing fictitious about a woman's murder. Now the Gunsmith must separate fact from fancy - because he himself is the main suspect...
