Maddie's second adventure, featuring the real event in L.A. history.
It's October, 1870, and once again, violence has disturbed the streets of Los Angeles. This time, City Marshal gets into a gunfight with his deputy Joseph Dye, and is severely wounded. Fortunately, winemaker and physician Maddie Wilcox is on the scene to take care of the marshal. But the next day, she finds that the marshal has been smothered in his bed.
The morning after the marshal's death, red paint is splashed all over the front porch of his home, and a list of his sins posted on the front.
The list of people with grievances against the fiery-tempered marshal is long. But then another prominent citizen has his sins posted and house front splattered. Finally, a chance encounter leads Maddie to realize that what the killer really wants is redemption.
