Summary
"The year is 1877. Automatons and steam-powered dirigible gunships have transformed the United States in the aftermath of the Civil War. All of the country{u2019}s land west of the Mississippi was sold to Russia nearly fifty years earlier, and zLittle Russia,y as it{u2019}s now called, is ruled by the son of Tsar Alexander II. The United States is being run as a police state by his former secretary of war Edwin Stanton, a power-hungry criminal who rules with an iron fist. Liam McCool is an outlaw, known among other crooks as zKing of the Cracksmen.y But his glory days as a safecracker and the head of a powerful New York gang end when he{u2019}s caught red-handed. Threatened with prison unless he informs on his own brethren fighting a guerilla war against Stanton{u2019}s tyranny, McCool{u2019}s been biding his time, trying to keeping the heat off him long enough to escape to San Francisco with his sweetheart Maggie. But when she turns up murdered, McCool discovers a trail of breadcrumbs that look to lead all the way up to the top of Stanton{u2019}s criminal organization."--Back cover
