When Carlos Webster was fifteen, he witnessed Emmett Long kill a man. Now he's Carl, twenty-one, and on his way to becoming the most famous Deputy US Marshal in America.
It's the 1930s and Oklahoma is full of hot cars, gun molls, speakeasies and street gangs. Carl Webster is ready to settle his score with Emmett and is also tracking down the bankrobber Jack Belmont, the no-good son of an oil magnate who's been cut of from his daddy's millions. Tony Antonelli, a writer on the True Detective Mystery magazine, smells a story brewing. But then Jack strats running whiskey and attrats the attention of Nestor Lott, a cold-blooded killer with a .45 on each hip and a clan of vigilantes.
