Synopsis: Longarm finds out just how bad the bad girls of Rio Blanco can be!

U.S. Deputy Marshal Custis Long is off to Rio Blanco County to catch some thieves stealing Indian Agency cattle. Two of the rustlers are women, so it should be interesting. But Longarm is being stalked by two hired killers. Some very wealthy folks want him dead so badly that they’ve secretly put a bigger bounty on his head than the James Boys and Billy the Kid combined.
They say that Longarm is Colorado’s answer to the late Wild Bill. But lately, he has trouble enough to overwhelm even the legendary Hickok. After he’s forced to kill Turk Tarrington, Longarm has the whole bloodthirsty clan on his trail. And a certain woman who kills the men she seduces hasn’t forgotten that Deputy Marshal Long turned down her advances. As soon as Liza Carver hooks up with her murderous accomplices, she plans to treat herself to the greatest thrill of all—luring Longarm to his death.
