Author's Note: As a kid, my two favorite TV genres were westerns and detective shows. I finally decided to tackle both in a mix I’ve thought of as “Firefly CSI”. Special thanks to maureen and evilmaniclaugh for excellent beta and their gracious guidance and to my own big_bad_man for helping me to pound out this convoluted plot.

If you’re following this tale, I’d really appreciate hearing what you think. Remember, feedback is what writers (and muses) live for. If you’re enjoying this, please pimp it to your friends. Thanks!
