(From the publisher):
If you went through a rugged paradise to Virginia City, Montana, you'd come to hell: a ramshackle town where fifty-six men had been killed, dozens of stage-coaches had been robbed, and a fanatical vigilante leader was threatening to blow the town sky-high. In Denver, Luke Starbuck is hired to stop the epidemic. But when he gets to Virginia City, he finds a tough sheriff already hanging outlaws as fast as he can, a mystery swirling around a young woman's murder, and a whole lot of people with blood on their hands. Working undercover with the help of a beautiful stage star, Starbuck soon discovers that the chaos of Virginia City is really a well-oiled and murderous crime machine. To take it apart, the West's most legendary detective has to find the Judas lurking behind every violent crime - and kill him...
