Longarm’s got his eyes on justice, and his hands on the Defense!
As a US Deputy Marshal, Custis Long has gone after more than his fare share of trouble. But when trouble runs right into him—wearing a blood-stained night gown no less—he knows he’ll be in for quite a ride.
It seems the wealthy silver mine owner Jericho Malone has just been stabbed to death in his own home, and his blood is on the night gown of his young, attractive second wife Estelle. Malone’s daughter always suspected that Estelle would sink to any level to get at their father’s money, and there’s an eye witness who swears he found her lying on the body, clutching the impaled knife in her hands. So when her defense lawyer up and collapses on the court room floor, it looks like then end of the line for Mrs. Malone. But with Longarm’s particular talent for persuading the fairer sex, Mrs. Malone has another lawyer in no time—a real fine darling of defense—and Longarm is there to make sure justice is served.
