En un breve instante, una caída borró su memoria. Ahora, de lo único que estaba seguro era de que alguien lo quería muerto... y que era mejor que averiguara por qué. Pero parecía que en cada sitio al que llegaba había aún más interrogantes... o más personas demasiado dispuestas a ocultar la verdad detrás de una cortina de humo compuesta de mentiras. Tenía únicamente el nombre que le habían dicho que era el suyo, su misteriosa destreza con la pistola y una relación con el equivalente a medio millón de dólares en oro escondido como evidencia de su vida pasada. ¿Era suyo el tesoro? ¿Era él un ladrón? ¿Un asesino? No tenía las respuestas, pero debía encontrarlas pronto. Porque lo que aún no sabía de sí mismo, lo sabían otros... y, a menos que develara el secreto de su pasado, no tendría mucho futuro.From the Paperback edition.
