Summary:

"After clearing up an almost comedic issue in Dodge City, Cy received an assignment to go to the town of Granite in New Mexico Territory to investigate a claim of massive overcharging by the telegraphers. It wasn't a particularly challenging issue, but it would mean a long ride and Cy actually looked forward to it. He was still in a good mood as he rode out of Dodge City and eventually Kansas. He didn't expect to spend much time in Granite and hoped that his next job would be a little more exciting. He'd had a few that reached that level but doubted that this one would be even difficult. If it was a case of greedy telegraphers, he'd have to fire them both and then have to stay there until the company sent replacement operators. It would be much simpler if his investigation found no evidence of overcharging, so he could be out of Granite quickly and go on to the next job. He was wrong on all counts. " Back cover.
