Widowmaker is the story of Shepard Sunday, a veteran desperate for somewhere to hide after a hellish tour of the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. Instead, he drifts into the hard-edged camp of Delamar and lands a job working security for the largest mining company in eastern Nevada. Now he’s back on the front lines, leading his deputies in a vicious struggle against an increasingly radicalized labor union. Struggling to navigate Delamar’s Byzantine web of treachery and greed, too late Sunday learns he’s been framed by a rival for murders he didn’t commit. Betrayed by an old love and hunted by his former comrades, is he on his own in the vast wilds of post-frontier Nevada, or can he make peace with his past in time to find unexpected allies?
