Slocum wouldn't say yes to a beautiful woman.
Not when all she offered was a fob. Even a job as pleasant as guarding the shapely Claudette Durant on the road to Fargo couldn't match what Slocum already had money in his pockets and all the whiskey and women one man would want.
Then four dirty dog bushwackers beat Slocum bloody and dumped him in the muddy waters of the mississippi on their way to Fargo. And now Slocum's the new employee of Miss Claudette Durant, riding a vengeance trail to Fargo...and putting business before pleasure.
