Gentle City

Grant has been viewed with great suspicion by the residents of Gentle City since the day he arrived.

They say he didn’t look the sort of man to look after a quaint store in a small town. The job just doesn’t quite fit him.

For he’s got gunman’s eyes, steely and sharp, and is quick as a shot.

Of course, it didn’t help matters when he nailed the taboo name of ‘Jackson’ above his door.

He claims he came to Gentle City to settle down.

It’s not a complete lie. After his rowdy past, he was looking forward to the quiet life.

But he’s interested in the Jacksons.

Too interested.

He wants to find out what happened to them. That’s all: just find out.

But if Grant thinks he can return to his new peaceful life in Gentle City after this, he’s got another thing coming.

As the mystery starts to unravel, things start to get rough.

The old feud is not dead.

And then there’s Molly Maclear…

The further tangled up in the town’s troubles – and his own – he gets, it becomes clearer there’s no going back.

So he does what any good hero does.

He goes ahead.
