Tracking a fugitive takes Slocum straight into no-man’s land.
Bismarck, North Dakota, is no place to be in the middle of winter. So when a young beauty bedecked in jewels shows up in the local saloon looking for a card game, Slocum can’t help but be intrigued. Especially when she turns out to be the worst poker player he’s ever seen.
The woman is Ginny Garfield, daughter of Gilbert G. Garfield of the Garfield Coal, Trains, and Shipping dynasty, and she’s hard on the trail of the man who killed her brother. But if Slocum wants her to survive the winter, he’s going to have to take over the hunt for Delbert Calkins—even if it means tailing him clear across the country. Because there’s one thing he knows about a man like Delbert: He was born bad, he lives bad, and he’ll die bad—as long as Slocum gets his way.
