Allison, a wealthy powerbroker of the old west town of Goldfield, took young Julie into his home and made her his trophy. This life came with the gift of being taken care of and the cost of more abuse.

 As Julie’s time with Allison is coming to a dangerous close, Julie is given two chances of escape, with two very different men…

Frank Dean is a hired assassin, working for Allison. Despite his profession, where he claims to only kill the 'bad ones', Frank is a gentleman, with a cool demeanor and a slick way with words.
