Poker and bounty hunting, exciting ways to make your living. Not when age and injury catch up with you, as Lucas Gates discovers.
On the suggestion of friend, Wild Bill Hickok, Gates applies for the job as marshal of Abilene, Kansas - Hickok's former job. The mayor informs Gates to consider his application successful but just "needs to run it by a few members of the local businesses."
Abilene has changed since Gates was last here but as he is about to find out not necessarily for the better.
