The town’s name was Repentance, which, judging by the behavior of some of its inhabitants, seemed a bit premature. They were still too busy sinning to have given much thought about repentance just yet.
Henrique Vermudez has barely been in Repentance an hour when he is forced to kill a man in self-defense. Suddenly he finds himself the target of the dead man’s brother and his bank-robbing gang in search of revenge. But Hank Dawson isn’t the only one out for blood.
Also in town is a cowboy named Oren, a secretive man with a scarred face who understands only too well what the lust for revenge can do to a man. Oren and Henrique share a connection besides both being marked for death, and their fledgling love—as well as their lives—will be threatened by the single draw of a gun.
