When Annabelle Fortune, the fastest gunslinger in the wild west, inadvertently stops a stranger from attacking a train — and he wears a suit that enables him to fly! — the government believes she’s the only one to have witnessed the Locomotive Reaper and survived to tell the tale.
Promising to find out what he can about her missing father, the Director of the Secret Service persuades Annie to swear in. Too soon, her detested nickname re-stakes its claim.
Partnered with Beau Slokam, whose penchant for gambling leads them straight to the Doom Gang, Misfortune Annie guides the smooth-talking Southerner in a chase through the Rockies, with her Cheyenne friend, Wontoa, rounding out their unlikely trio.
When Annie again meets the Locomotive Reaper, his gadgetry proves far more advanced — and deadly — than even top scientists could have imagined.
Yep, a sequel is already underway!
A mysterious stranger known only as Dravamba has cast a spell on Misfortune Annie’s fellow agent Beau Slokam. After Slokam is seen—of all things—torching his family’s plantation, he is now doing Dravamba’s bidding, searching for the Idol of the Necropolis in New Orleans.
The Director of the Secret Service assigns Annie and her Cheyenne friend Wontoa to find Slokam because they are the only ones who know him well enough to possibly bring him back from the darkness. It won’t be easy. The swamps around Dravamba’s temple are crawling with man-eaters and Voodoo, and when he gets his clutches on the idol that enables him to raise the dead, Annie will need more than her quick draw to get out alive.
