A lynch mob ranks just below a rattlesnake in the Gunsmith's eyes. And a lynch mob that would hang a woman doesn't deserve the dirt it would take to bury it. That's just the kind of low-down cowardice Clint Adams finds when he rides into Horizon, Kansas. This bunch of so-called men left an innocent woman for dead—and now they've got to answer to the Gunsmith. Some would say the odds are against the Gunsmith, taking on seven men. But it only takes one legend to get the job done...

Then they cross paths with a hardworking Irish immigrant and his beautiful, spirited sister, who've been burned off their land. It's a fight Pike and Holt don't want, don't need, and don't dare turn their backs on—especially when one of the perpetrators might be one of Pike's old friends. Hunted like animals across the frozen countryside, Pike and Holt will risk everything—including their reputations, their dreams—and their lives.

Why do men tend to keep love letters in files along with their other correspondence, whereas women keep them with their clothes? And if a letter is written but not posted, at whom is it really directed? As psychoanalyst Darian Leader shows, such questions go to the heart of sexual desire, which is never addressed to our flesh and blood companion, but always to something beyond him or her. In an engaging, at times startling, enquiry into the fundamental loneliness of each sex, Leader asks why relationships frequently run aground on the trivial question, 'What are you thinking?' If a man chooses as his partner a woman unlike his mother, why does he try to make her behave towards him exactly as his mother did, when he was a boy? And why might a woman decide not to spend the night with a man, after one glimpse of his apartment?
