When a geologist who horse wrangler Jake Holley has been gambling with dies of fever after telling him that he has found gold, Jake travels to the Telluride Hills to take over his claim. Here, he does indeed find gold nuggets. Then a trapper called Lemaitre jumps his claim and leaves Jake for dead. Badly injured, Jake manages to get back to civilization where his hand, infected with gangrene, is cut off. Nearly a year after his 'death', and fitted with an iron hand of his own design, he goes back to the claim to get revenge against Lemaitre, where he is attacked by an Indian called Bear. It transpires that Bear's betrothed, the beautiful White Dove, has been kidnapped by Lemaitre and that Bear has mistakenly attacked Jake (Iron Hand), believing him to be Lemaitre. The two men form an alliance and travel together to track him down and to rescue White Dove. However, it soon becomes apparent that White Dove has a secret in her past that will endanger both men and soon both Iron Hand and Bear realize that they will have to rely on each other's skills if they are to survive.

My father's church was on one end of the block and Slay conducted his business on the other. It was a street that, depending on which direction you were going, led you to heaven or to hell. At the time, I didn't have the fortitude to tell that as a disciple of the Lord, down on the corner is exactly where he needed to be - slinging scriptures as the dope boys slung rocks. I disobeyed my father's commandment and followed my heart... a decision that, indeed, led me to hell.

Lawrence Sanders’s beloved sleuth Archy McNally returns in a novel by Vincent Lardo When Palm Beach detective Archy McNally takes the helm of a local theater production, the curtain falls on blackmail and murder One of the most celebrated stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Desdemona Darling, has come South for the season. She makes headlines when she agrees to star in the Palm Beach Community Theater’s production of Arsenic and Old Lace. Archy McNally somehow gets roped into directing—and into discreetly investigating who could be blackmailing his star. Life tragically imitates art when Richard Holmes—Darling’s Husband Number Seven—sips some elderberry wine laced with arsenic at the cast party. Holmes was a self-made millionaire with a genius for betting on pork bellies. But who’d want him dead? As McNally tries to smoke out the culprit, he wonders if he’s getting too close to a remorseless killer who’s about to drop the curtain on another victim.
