The story starts with a cowhand named Milo Talon meeting with a rich man named Jefferson Henry. Jefferson Henry hires Milo Talon to find a girl that had been “missing” for years. He meets a girl named Molly Fletcher in a restaurant, who seems to be a lot more involved in the fishy situation than she lets on.
