(From the publisher):
LONG JOHNNY JAEGER CHEWED LIGHNING AND BELCHED THUNDER...
not a man you say no to easily. Which is why Faro agreed to carry Long Johnny's $40,000 poke to the San Antone superstakes poker game.
Which is also why Faro was more than a little upset when his stagecoach was held up, Johnny's money belt snatched off his waist and a gun butt laid across his head. He recovered in Tellus, under the warm gaze of his old friend Nell Garvin, the town's fancy house "proprietress."
Tellus was a town where the women seemed to hold all the high cards - and Faro figured to stay at Nell's and play a few, until he could retrieve his loss.
But he didn't figure on a jail spell, a manhunt, a crime wave and a women's sex strike.
Long Johnny Jaeger might be easier to face.
