(From the publisher):
Welcome to Leadville. A melting pot of Irish and Swedes, steelworkers and scam artists. Growing faster than it can bear, tainted by the soot of smelters and the smell of whiskey, Leadville is the town where two reporters carrying pencils, pads and six-guns will meet their match. Brady Kenton, America's foremost traveling reporter, has come to the violent mining town to sniff out a story for Gunnison's Illustrated American. Alex Gunnison, son of the famous publisher, comes along for the ride, as Kenton's assistant and to keep the trouble-seeking journalist out of harm's way. But with a dead body found and lost, and an innocent boy running from a killer, the two men have more than a story on their hands. They're searching for a Civil War criminal who may be alive and well in Leadville - and up to his killing ways again...
