The year is 1882; the American West has yet to be won, and one place engaged in the constant daily. A flourishing mining town, its residents fall into two opposing camps: those looking to get rich quick – prospectors, ranchers and merchants, and those looking to get rich even quicker – thieves, card sharps, and gunmen. The long arm of the law has so far managed to keep these two conflicting sides far enough apart for the town to prosper, but, with the situation now spiralling dangerously out of control, the town’s future is beginning to look increasingly uncertain. One thing never in doubt, though, is the notorious annual Poker Tournament. Despite intense public speculation, the game’s ‘high-roller’ guest list remains a closely guarded secret from all but the participants, until the game is just about to start. However, an hour before this year’s players are due to appear, the town is stunned by the news that one of them, the outlaw Jesse James, has been ruthlessly gunned down in his room.
