Forget Deadwood, Dodge, and Tombstone, the biggest, baddest boomtown of the 1880s was San Diego, California. The attraction wasn't gold or silver but cheap land, the promise of an oceanfront paradise where it never snows and rarely rains, and the too-good-to-be-true deals offered by local real estate merchants.In the wake of bona fide settlers came the hucksters, con artists, and snake oil vendorsaso many flimflam men (and women) that those duped called the town "Scam Diego." Abetting the crime and chaos was the nearby Mexican border, a convenient refuge for the rustlers, ex-Rebels, and banditos who floated back and forth across the unmarked frontier. Caught up in this perfect storm are two men: U.S. Marshal Cradoc Bradshaw and San Diego Times reporter Nicholas Pinder.Best friends growing up, Bradshaw and Pinder are now sworn enemiesaall because of a woman.Having once cooperated to catch bad guys, Bradshaw and Pinder now competeaPinder with his quill pen or Bradshaw with his sawed-off shotgun and Colt single action Army revolver.The competition heats up when someone starts killing the town's movers and shakers. As the bodies pile up, the question becomes which of the former friends willtrack downthe killerfirst?
