replace-string on escaped character

I'm embarrassed to ask this.  I'm guessing there is a simple solution
that I am simply missing.  For whatever reason, a text file that I need
to work on renders the apostrophe as \222 in emacs.  The file isn't
large, about 3000 words, but the writer seems enamored of contractions
and possessives.  There are a pot load of apostrophes.

replace-string doesn't work, or I haven't properly described the object.
Will someone please set me on the right path?
