(From the publisher):
When Lou Prophet and his partner Louisa Bonaventure set a clever trap for the stage-robbing Thorson-Mahoney Gang, the bushwhackers don't come along easy - they come along dead. But where bounty money is concerned, dead is good enough to collect. So the pair haul their quarry to a remote town to get their due.
Trouble is, the town of Bitter Creek proves even more dangerous than hunting outlaws. The local lawmen have been hanged - because they arrested the son of Sam Scanlon. Scanlon and his murderous riders have plagued the town for years, and now that the law is dead, they'll raise hell till they've had their fill. Unless Lou Prophet can track them down, and show them that justice doesn't always wear a badge...
