Albert Jennings Fountain and his eight-year-old son Henry disappeared near the White Sands of New Mexico at the hands of suspected cattle rustlers. The governor called in both the Pinkerton Agency and Pat Garrett, killer of Billy the Kid, to investigate. The evidence pointed at three former deputies, who were defended by powerful ex-judge, lawyer, and politician Albert B. Fall. The verdict? Not guilty. The bodies of Albert Fountain and his young son Henry have never been found. Corey Recko tells for the first time the complete story of the Fountains and, through extensive research, reconstructs what really happened to them and who the likely killers were. \"This is the \'ultimate\' Pat Garrett\/A.J.
