(From the publisher):
FARO BLAKE WON BIG IN SIMSVILLE ONE NIGHT, BUT HE LOST EVEN BIGGER THE FOLLOWING MORNING -
When the bloodthirsty followers of Utah's most famous bandit, Joshua Crabb, cornered him and his friend, Jim Higginson, in a lonely shack. There they tortured the winnings out of Higginson - before they killed him - and left Faro for dead.
But Higginson's beautiful sister soon had Faro feeling a whole lot better, restoring a few of the urges he thought had been walloped out of him - not the least of which was the urge for revenge.
Now Faro's donned a disguise as a desperate outlaw, and he's riding right into Joshua's canyon hideaway to settle the score against the men who beat and robbed him - and maybe carry off the bulk of Joshua's loot in the bargain.
Can he do it? Sure!... Will it be easy? Don't bet on it!
