Summary

Patrick Dunnigan, a successful gentleman gambler running a regular table game in a grand hotel in Kansas City, receives a disturbing letter from his uncle, Ethan Brooke. Seems the old man is spooked about developments in the little town of Sundown, New Mexico. Two local business men in town, Race Keene and Emmett Culpepper, are after the timber on Ethan’s property and his neighbors’ land. According to Ethan, the men have hired a group of gunslingers and thugs to pressure the farmer’s to give up their land. The tough old man is afraid for the first time in his life. Patrick and his brother Shannon, a retired lawman and former gunslinger now married and expecting a baby with his wife Judith, are Ethan’s only relatives.

When Patrick arrives in Sundown, he senses that the trouble there would be better served with Shannon’s skills than his own, but the gambler is reluctant to ask his brother to take up the gun again just when he has changed his life for the good. So Patrick sets out for Ethan’s farm and a ugly discovery that will put Patrick Dunnigan squarely in the middle of a ruthless and bloody turf war that could cost him his life.
