A HIRED GUN DELIVERS FRONTIER JUSTICE ON A COLONY WORLD.
The man called Twelve is a hired gun, taking his laser pistol from planet to planet, hiring his services out to the highest bidder.
He finds himself on Glycon-Prime, a new colony at the edge of space. On the hunt for work, Twelve blows into a small, frontier town—only to find a massacre.
The only survivors? A trio of young children, devastated by the murder of their families. They are hell-bent on hiring the gunslinger to get revenge on the leader of the vicious mutants responsible . . . the man known only as The Serpent’s Head.
