A GUNSLINGING WESTERN LOADED WITH QUICK-DRAW JUSTICE.
On the run from the assassins who murdered his family, Ty Butler found a new way to survive – with a few good hands, a loaded gun, and a little luck. But lying low and keeping out of his hunters' gunsights is getting harder to do since he started earning a serious rep at the poker table—and especially now that he's made some new friends—named Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and Doc Holliday.
In Denver, Butler finds Holliday in the clutches of corrupt lawmen. Doc's wanted for murder back in Tombstone, and he'd rather go out in a blazing gunfight than face an Arizona hanging judge. All Butler has to do is keep Doc breathing until Earp and Masterson arrive to spring him—and that won't be easy. The Gambler's been dealt into a dangerous game with too many killers anteing up. And this time Ty Butler just might be drawing dead.
His luck is running thin, but it hasn’t run out yet…
Award winning, best selling author Robert J. Randisi delivers the goods in this classic action and adventure Western series starring Ty Butler, a gambler extraordinaire.
Ty Butler came from Eastern wealth—but ruthless killers destroyed everyone—and anything—who shared his name. Seeking a safe haven in the open West, he discovered refuge among the outlaws and fugitives who staked their claims at the gaming table. His remarkable, and at times uncanny skill at reading faces and cards has kept Butler flush with cash and living comfortably—but it has also kept him sharp and ready for the numerous assassins hunting him, eager to finish the job of wiping the Butler name and legacy from the pages of history.
Arriving in Dodge City, Butler finds the place in chaos. A new type of law is in play here where Bat Masterson carved his legend. Old and powerfully dangerous grudges are about to explode, and Ty Butler is caught smack dab in the middle. When the smoke clears and the undertaker has cleared the corpses, Butler will have friends and enemies in all the wrong places."Classic old west as a gunman begins settling scores for good people..."
