In the early 1800s, as the Spanish surrender Florida to the United States government, Emily Bisset reunites with her estranged mother Simone to solve a family mystery and seek revenge on the man who abandoned them both: Confidence John.
As they make their way to the southern coast, intending to enter the legendary poker game run by Emily's con-man father, they encounter escaped slaves, Seminole warriors, Florida patriots, and Spanish missionaries — some friend, some foe, some both.
Soon another mystery presents itself: who is the stranger that pursues them, and how does she know so much about their quest?
