Making a clean escape from your past is no easy feat. Case in point: Jaded gunslinger Sim McCracken, carrying a packsaddle of secret shame, wants to forge a new life. That's why he spared the young pastor he was hired to kill. But that has made the deadly land baron who hired him more than unhappy. Before Sim can make his getaway, another secret from his past catches up with him--his mentally challenged brother, Charles, whom Sim hasn't seen since they were children. Sim has to travel across Missouri to escort Charles to an institution, with his dark past breathing down his neck, and with murderous pursuers just one step behind him.
