DEAD IN THE SADDLE
On the dodge from the law, Slocum rides into the remote town of Scorpion Bend just as the yearly high-stakes Big Race is about to begin. Hired as a bodyguard to the odds-on favorite rider, Slocum sees a chance to lay low and make some easy money...until his client is murdered with deadly precision right in front of him.
Now, Slocum finds himself taking the murdered man's place. With thousands of dollars on the line and lives in the balance, the fastest cowboys in the territory gallop hell-bent for leather on a trail of money and murder. And Slocum is trying to survive in a race where nice guys don't just finish last -- they don't finish at all!
