In Europe, Men Fought A War To End All Wars.
In Galveston, They Fought To Survive...
In Europe, the guns had gone silent. But in Texas, the spirit of the Wild West still lived-and the town of Galveston belonged lock, stock, and barrel to a handful of criminal overlords. Kingpins of vice, gambling, liquor, and big-time show business, the overlords didn't count on a stubborn, Hollywood stuntman who inherited his uncle's bank and a grudge. Nor could they predict that one Texas Ranger and a beautiful woman were daring enough to take on an undercover assignment-and try to shut down America's paradise of gambling. Now, a dangerous brew of mobsters, flappers, traitors, lovers and lawmen is about to explode in a sin city by the sea. And the only question left is who will still be standing when the last man goes down...
