(From the publisher):
Secrets run deep in Apache Wells, Arizona, where someone is preying on the premium ponies - picking up horses and leaving them out to dry... in pieces. When John Slocum gets lassoed in to put a stop to it, something rotten starts to stink worse than the carrion...
With a mistress in need and fine meals to be had, the Bar C Ranch seems like a good place for a rest from his work. But as strange gold pieces sprout up among the desert carnage, Slocum reckons right quick that the culprits behind these terrible killings may be closer than expected. Slocum and his trusty gelding aren't the kind to get spooked, and soon it won't be just the ponies that need saving...
