Fleeing the wiles of a San Francisco woman in March 1880, Jake Hollander arrives in anew Mexico mining town as the incredulous and outraged custodian of a pair of Mexican orphans. He is a hard, mean man of forty-five, former gun-slinger, a present cardsharp, whose plan is to dump Paco and Irraca and keep right on going to El Paso and a new career as saloonkeeper. What with one thing and another, he settles down for a spell in Arrendondo, takes up his old calling of marshal, and finds his hands full with a whole lot more than just gun butts.
