In Texas, every man has his price.

For a young man of 17, Wilkie John Liquorish has lived one sorry life. From his ill-fated stint in the US Army to a back-breaking job as a gravedigger, Wilkie just can't seem to catch a break.

His latest gig - working a cattle drive from Mobeetie, Texas, to Fort Worth - is no exception. The food-poisoning death of a chuckwagon cook has everyone spooked, and the fear spreads like a disease. Wilkie barely makes it out alive. But when he shows up in Fort Worth, he has another kind of death waiting for him-in the unlikely form of Gentleman Jack Delaney....

A fancily-dressed bounty hunter from New Orleans, Gentleman Jack is ready to nail and hang young Wilkie as soon he arrives in town. He claims the boy is the most wanted outlaw in Texas. If Wilkie can manage to outsmart, outrun, or outgun this not-so-gentle man, he just might go down in history. Or swing from a tree. Or both....

There are a million ways to die in the Old West. This is one of them.
