Widowmaker follows the story of Shepard Sunday, a veteran looking for a place 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 as head of security for the largest mining company in the state of 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, Shepard finds he has been framed by his boss for murders he didn’t commit. Betrayed by an old love and hunted by his former comrades, is Shepard 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?
