Battered by a run across the border to Mexico, Lizbeth Rose take a job offer from a pair of Russian wizards to be their local guide and gunnie. For the wizards, Gunnie Rose has already acquired a fearsome reputation and they’re at a desperate crossroad, even if they won’t admit it. They’re searching through the small border towns near Mexico, trying to locate a low-level magic practitioner, Oleg Karkarov. The wizards believe Oleg is a direct descendant of of Grigori Rasputin, and that Oleg’s blood can save the young tsar’s life. As the trio journey through an altered America, shattered into several countrires by the assassination of Franklin Roosevelt and the Great Depresssion, they’re set on by enemies. It’s clear that powerful fouce does not want them to succeed in their mission. Lizbeth Rose is a gunnie who has never failed a client, but her oath will test her skills and resolve to get them all out alive.
