Val Darrant was just four years old the snowy night his
mother abandoned him. But instead of meeting a lonely death,
he met Will Reilly—a gentleman, a gambler, and a worldly,
self-taught scholar. It was a cold, snowy night as he was
hustled away on a buckboard to be abandoned. But he did not
die; he met Will Reilly. A gentleman, a gambler, and the best
rifle shot in the West. Reilly was a man who knew the odds
and played them. But what were the odds on taking in a
frightened young boy? For ten years they each were all the
family the other had, traveling from dusty American boomtowns
to the cities of Europe—until the day Reilly’s luck ran out
in a roar of gunfire.
But it wasn’t a gambling brawl or a pack of thieves that sealed Will’s fate. It was a far more complex story that Val would soon uncover, one that touched upon Val’s nearly forgotten childhood, the woman who was Will Reilly’s lost love, and the violent future of a growing country.
