"Abishag Shaw is seeking vengeance for his brother's murder -- and Benjamin January is seeking money after every bank in the country crashes. Far beyond the frontier , in the depths of the Rocky Mountains, both are to be found at the great Rendezvous of the Mountain Men. And during that month-long orgy of cheap booze, shooting-matches, tall tales and cut-throat trading, something else is found instead: the corpse of a murdered gentleman whom nobody recognizes, clean-shaven, perfumed, and clothed on in a pair of black kid gloves."-- Cover.
