(From the publisher):
Escorting a wanted man from El Paso to Denver is a peach of an assignment for Longarm, until - right before his eyes - an assassin empties a six-gun into his prisoner.
Chasing the shooter off the train, Longarm finds himself caught in a torrential downpour. But his rain of bullets hits its mark. He kills the gunman... only to run into his accomplices in the storm. Luckily for Longarm, they think he is the gunman. Now he can get close to the man who ordered the hit on his prisoner - Kansas badman Sand Lachlan, who's proven as elusive as his namesake every time he slips through justice's fingers...
Now it's up to Longarm to show Sand who's made of true grit...
