    The year is 1882. The place is Diamondback, New Mexico. You are a stranger on the run - without a friend, a gun, or a past. Somewhere in this scruffy frontier outpost are the keys to your survival. And more. When rumors surface of lost Spanish silver, mayhem follows. Can you save a hardscrabble band of pioneers from themselves? ... Or will you succumb to temptation in a town where you are the only law?
