Carlos Webster was fifteen in the fall of 1921 the first
time he came face-to-face with a nationally known criminal.
A few weeks later, he killed his first man--a cattle thief
who was rustling his dad's stock. Now Carlos, called Carl,
is the hot kid of the U.S. Marshals Service, one of the
elite manhunters currently chasing the likes of Dillinger,
Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd across America's
Depression-ravaged heartland. Carl wants to be the country's
most famous lawman.
Jack Belmont, the bent son of an oil
millionaire, wants to be public enemy number one. Tony
Antonelli of True Detective magazine wants to write
about this world of cops and robbers, molls and speakeasies
from perilously close up.
Then there are the hot dames-Louly
and Elodie-hooking their schemes and dreams onto dangerous
men. And before the gunsmoke clears, everybody just might
end up getting exactly what he or she wished for.
