Just because you're off the grid doesn't mean you're not a target. In this fiercely inventive novel of suspense and satire, Westworld by way of DJango Unchained, a down-on-his-luck helicopter pilot named Huey Palmer finds himself hired by a small cadre of treasure hunters who set out into the Nevada desert to find a gun. It's not just any gun that eccentric billionaire Ernie Swords wants, it's a long-lost antique, one with a story worth a fortune, and Swords has the money and the means to get it. Where Huey and his cohorts soon find themselves, however, is stranded far from civilization in a forgotten town dubbed Showdown City, where the infamous gun is one of hundreds readily available for the townsfolk to settle any and all disputes. After living in isolation for over a hundred years, the town has morphed into a warped, lawless community overseen by a delusional tyrant and his quick-draw henchman-and they do not take kindly to strangers. Huey is the one who got them into this mess in Showdown City, and now, with the unlikeliest help, he has a plan to shoot their way out.
