(From the publisher):
Someone's just knocked off a U.S. Senator - and killed a messenger who was transporting his documents. Problem is, the fumin' people of Colorado think they know who did it. But thinkin' ain't knowin'. Enter Custis Long, who's sent to track down the Ute who worked for the Senator - and maybe murdered him to keep the natives from gettin' swindled.
But there's also the senator's widow to worry about - the Black Widow. People in her family have a strange way of dying - suddenly. With the Rockies to cross and a stubborn Navajo for a sidekick, Longarm's got an uphill battle: reaching the Ute before a lynch mob does, and discovering how poisonous the Black Widow really is...
