Being known as the fastest gun in the west, and killing his fair share of men in the process, makes Wild Bill Hickok a constant target for his enemies seeking revenge. So, when he rides into the town of Deadwood Gulch in the Dakota Territory, he always has to keep an eye on his back.
Like many people in the late 1800s, Bill has set out to make his fortune in the gold rush, and Deadwood is bustling with gold miners, saloons, and brothels. When Bill fails to stake a claim on the river for gold panning, he resorts to his first love in order to make some quick cash: poker. With his good friends Calamity Jane and Charlie Utter keeping him company, the former lawman finds himself winning at the tables, and keeping the saloons in business with his love of whiskey. Wild Bill is trying to save enough money to provide a good life for him and his wife for years to come, but his enemies have other ideas.
The Dead Man’s Hand: A Moment in Time is the fascinating second book in Katheryn Shelly’s Past Life Journey series.
