They say that events in a man's life can try the soul and turn the benevolent mind into something sinister, dark and evil beyond recognition. Thus was the case with Jerod Brinkman. He was a successful and respected businessman in Abilene, Kansas in 1880. But he had a dark secret, and evil had no limits in this man's soul. Mental scars from the Civil War twisted his mind with a sickness that was only curable with power and wealth and nothing or nobody would stand in his way of achieving his goals. A criminal organization made up of unscrupulous saddle bums and vigilante justice were his malicious enablers to attain his ambitious aspirations. The question was, "Could anyone bring this man to justice?" Saddle up my friends for a wild ride in the Old West!
