"Trespassers will be gutted and hung!"-Slagton's unofficial town motto
Normally, not even drunk on a bet would Violet Parker go to Slagton, a creepy ghost town inhabited by those too stubborn-or deranged-to leave. But a certain bullheaded Deadwood detective has a problem-his informant from Slagton has gone missing. When Violet is shanghaied into taking a hunting trip to the ghost town to search for the missing snitch, she stumbles into trouble that will take more than a double-barreled shotgun to escape.
Will Violet survive this new hell that haunts her, or will she end up on Slagton's growing list of those "gutted and hung"?
