Synopsis: Longarm partners up with a French aristocrat in a race for lost treasure…

Deputy Marshal Custis Long has no interest in putting up with the antics of an arrogant Frenchman. But though he’d like to tell the Marquis de Sant’ Cerre to take a flying leap, it seems the President of the United States has something else in mind for the unlikely pair. Some French gold has gone missing en route to Mexico, and now Longarm must help the Marquis in his search.
