(From the publisher):
Deputy Marshal Custis Long has no interest in putting up with the antics of an arrogant Frenchman. Though he'd like to tell the Marquis de Sant Cerre to take a flying leap, it seems the president of the United States has something else in mind for the unlikely pair. Some French gold has gone missing en route to Mexico, and now Longarm must help the Marquis in his search.
But before the hunt can begin, Longarm finds himself thwarting a kidnapping - and an attempt on his own life. He suspect's there's more at stake than some lost gold, but the nobleman's lips are sealed. Now, Longarm must figure out who's throwing lead in their direction - and how to keep himself and his closemouthed charge alive...
