Synopsis: Slocum is on the hunt for some renegade justice…

After a night of drunken debauchery in Dodge City, Slocum knows he may have indulged in too much whiskey, but he’s sure he wouldn’t lose everything in a game of poker—he was robbed. And when he finds out that men responsible are a gambler and a pair of hired guns, Slocum sets out to beat them at their own game.
But when Daniel Garner, a scout for the Cavalry Division, comes looking for one of the robbers, Slocum finds out that Milt Connoway isn’t just a thief, he’s a dirty liar. Seems Milt lied about a bunch of Pawnee killing travelers near Misty Creek, resulting in a massacre on three Indian villages. Daniel is on a mission to bring Milt and the men behind the unmerited massacre to justice, and Slocum is ready and willing to help him seek out the truth.
