Trouble's found Tate Barkley again, but this time it's in the form of a beautiful but cold-hearted young woman with two murderous henchmen, who rob Tate and leave him for dead beside a north Florida road. When he's able to set out in pursuit, Tate follows a trail that draws him ever deeper into that vast forbidding swampland near the headwaters of the Withlacoochee River. Can there be any truth to the local legends of ""haints"" and witches who roam the swamp's dark vastness? Or of travelers and settlers who disappear without a trace, imprisoned by some evil force?
Tom Bridger has come to Florida in 1885 to find his long-lost uncle and a hidden treasure. He arrives in Jacksonville and heads west across Florida's wild frontier, his quick temper bringing several brushes with death, including gator-filled swamps and a footrace with a stagecoach. It all comes down to a boxing match between Young Tom Bridger and Bongo Jones, the Key West Slasher.
