In 1863, Bloody Bill Anderson and his outlaws stopped a westbound train just outside Centralia, Missouri. They stole the strongbox, which contained three thousand dollars, and executed twenty-five Union Soldiers.
Hawk remembered his two brothers who were killed that day. As a small boy he tried in vain to comfort his mother who died a few months later of a broken heart. It was that day in the churchyard that he swore on his mother’s grave that he would get revenge.
Now his time had come and the trail of these killers had lead him to Frank James and Bob Ford and a question he may not live long enough to answer. Why was it that everyone who knew about the agreement between the Ford Brothers and the James Brothers, committed suicide, died mysteriously, or was murdered?
Hawk knew he would have to find the answer to that question or die trying.
