In a gritty and sweeping tale, R.S. Belcher brings together a vivid cast of characters in a story that encompasses classic Wild West action, gripping horror, and the dark truth behind the creation of the world. Both compelling and complex, THE SIX-GUN TAROT is a fast-paced adventure where nothing is what it seems.
It is Nevada, 1869, and beyond the pitiless 40-Mile Desert lies Golgotha, a cattle town that hides more than its share of unnatural secrets. A half-dead boy stumbles out of the wilderness, with a mysterious heirloom and the law at his heels. The sheriff bears the scars of three attempted hangings, and it is said that he cannot die. His half-human Indian deputy is kin to coyotes. The mayor guards a hoard of mythical treasures and a sinful secret. A banker’s wife hides her deadly abilities behind a façade of domesticity. And a shady saloon owner, whose fingers are in everyone’s business, may know more about the town’s true origins than he’s letting on. Much more. A haven for the blessed and the damned, Golgotha has known many strange events, but nothing like the primordial darkness stirring in the abandoned silver mine overlooking the town. Bleeding midnight, an ancient evil is spilling into the world, and unless the sheriff and his posse can saddle up in time, Golgotha will have seen its last dawn… and so will all of Creation.
