This fast-paced book relates the adventures of independent-minded tough cowgirl Lilian Goodnight. Lil is a fine horsewoman, expert at roping calves and driving cows and is an excellent shot with a pistol too. Apparently, she can also out-cuss her father's ranch-hands.
She interrupts a cavalry chase of some renegade Apaches and is instrumental in getting Scout Jackson Farraday fired from his job. Jackson is worldly wise but unaware that Lil is attracted to him.
When they come upon the slaughter of the Army paymaster, a few pieces of a puzzle begin to fit - and their discovery is liable to put the lives of both of them in jeopardy.
The local sheriff is crooked and leaps at the opportunity of framing Jackson for murder. Cavalry Lieutenant Covington is still a novice at coping with the West and women in particular. He means well but is reluctant to get drawn into any conflict between the townsfolk. He's not too pleased about being bested more than once by a young girl, Misfit Lil, either.
There's an amusing explanation for Lil's odd moniker and it involves a finishing school in France, sex with the gardener's son and expulsion. A fine introduction to a character we're going to hear more about - notably in Misfit Lil Fights Back and Misfit Lil Gets Even. Most enjoyable and recommended.
