Jess rides out of the town of Raleigh, leaving John Bodine and Frank Reedy. He’s now on the hunt for Sidney Meyer. His hunt eventually takes him to the town of Bruin, where he finally kills him.
In Bruin, he meets a gambler by the name of Deacon, who had come to town to play in a high stakes poker game there, but the safe in the saloon is robbed before the game starts.
The gamblers pay Jess to hunt the four men responsible for the robbery and Jess allows Deacon, who had worked as a bounty hunter in the past, to join him.
During the long and deadly hunt, Jess discovers that Deacon will gamble on just about anything…even their lives.
