Catching A Murderous Monster Ain't Going To Be Cheap. . . In Oklahoma Indian Territory just over the Kansas line, settlers are losing their heads. Literally, that is. Decapitated bodies are turning up and businessman Cyrus Warwick, who's aiming to make this town bigger than Dodge City, wants it to stop--bad for business, he says. It's bad for his only daughter too: she's the next victim of this "Monster of Osage." Warwick's $20,000 bounty goes up. . . . and all hell breaks loose. Asa Cain, Hardcase The good, the bad, and the just plain trigger-happy come looking to claim the bounty, and up goes the body count. But it's not Wyatt Earp or Doc Watson picking up the killer's trail--it's the bloodiest bounty hunter of them all, Asa Cain, and his undertaker partner Cemetery John. But what's at the end of this trail is something even Asa Cain never imagined in his darkest dreams . . . "Hodgson is a gift to western writing."--Roundup "A first-rate writer." --Dale L. Walker, past president, Western Writers of America
