Jefferson Nighthawk is the Widowmaker the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. Or rather he was until he came down with a fatal disease a century ago. Since that time he has been cryogenically frozen until a cure can be found - but now inflation has eaten away at his fortune and he is about to be awakened from his expensive surroundings and cast out. At the last second an offer comes in from a distant Frontier world: if they'll clone the Widowmaker and have the clone do a job for them a job only the Widowmaker can do they'll pay enough to keep him alive and frozen until a cure is achieved. The clone is created and trained in all the arts of killing and self-defense. He has all of the Widowmaker's skills and abilities in a deadly 23-year-old body…but none of his experiences. Can he stockpile some wisdom before his innocence and ignorance kills them both - the clone and the original? Find the answers in this powerful story by 5-time Hugo winner Mike Resnick.
