Jack Brown lost both his parents at a young age but continued to grow up understanding the meaning of respect and hard work thanks to a close family friend, Sam. Life for Jack is simple until a dangerous man comes to town seeking a high stakes poker game. Sam's lust for gambling leads the stranger to take Sam's money and his life.
While collecting Sam's body, he learns that the stranger has also kidnapped a young woman. With nothing left to go home to, Jack decides to save the young woman, whom he finds himself growing attracted to and avenge his old friend's death. Despite his lack of life experience, Jack finds it increasingly difficult to do what he thinks is noble.
Will Jack Brown find purpose in life or succumb to his fears and emotions?
When Jack Brown goes out to avenge his friends death and rescue a kidnapped woman, he finds himself quickly in over his head. Written from an entirely different perspective than usual westerns, it's a wonderfully told, fast paced story which kept me entertained throughout.
