(From the publisher):
If it weren't for the prospect of $300 in his pocket, Fargo wouldn't want anything to do with the mining town of Gila Bend. But he promised fetching young Clarice Hammond that he'd try to find her father, who disappeared searching for silver. Besides the usual bullies and brawlers, Gila Bend holds a mother lode of secrets and dangers - including a shadowy figure known as the Renegade, whose merciless mutilations and savage killings have the entire town terrified. But the Trailsman has a job to do, and he's going to get to the bottom of the dastardly deeds ruining the peace of this blood-soaked boomtown...
