Clint Adams on vacation? Impossible. He might leave his home, but he could never leave his reputation as the Gunsmith behind. Still, he reckoned he'd earned a break, and he was fixin' to try St. Louis on for size. Once he arrives, Clint likes what he sees... namely, a beautiful young actress named Cassandra Thorson. After seeing her play, he decides to have a friendly chat with her. But there are a few folks who ain't thrilled with the idea: Miss Thorson's leading man, the theater's bouncer... and a madman who also fancies the ladyâ€”and who's taking grisly steps to eliminate the competition!
