Everyone in the sleepy little town of Bodey, Colorado kws Jack Tulle as a widower, a doting father, and the honest owner of the general store. He sits on the town council. He dotes upon his eight-year-old, headstrong daughter, Abigail. But when the local saloon anunces plans to host a poker tournament, Jack realizes it could spell trouble. One of the many secrets he's been hiding is that he used to be a swindler--mainly cheating at poker, but he had done worse when a situation presented itself. A contest like the one his town is planning is sure to draw some old business acquaintances--fellows Jack would really rather t admit to kwing. But the one man Jack is truly worried to see again is the one that kws more of Jack's past than any other: Tom Jude, who was t merely his partner-in-crime; Jude was also the love of his life. When your world is built on so many lies, exposing a single one of them can bring a man's life crashing down.
