Rhett Stetson is in a whole heap o’ trouble. He’s staring down a losing hand in a life-or-death game of cards against the fearsome adjudicator known as Steely Bill. If Steely Bill don’t get him, there’s a bevy of bloodthirsty bounty hunters itching for their shot, not to mention a field full of massive man-eating spiders blocking his only way out. His only hope is an uncompromising robotic Marshal who aims to escort him off-planet to face trial for murder, and that ain’t no hope at all. Can the rakish rogue dodge them all and escape this lawless planet unscathed, or has his luck finally run out?
