Chester Kate's been hired to burn the town of Whale to the ground. Every last building must be razed so the railroad can push on through. Bloody Chester is about to make his mark in the only way he knows how. Maybe then everyone will stop using his other nickname: Lady Kate.

I enjoyed this moody Western graphic novel mystery quite a lot. It had subtlety and depth of character that many graphic novels never achieve, along with a good story and very effective art. It's not flashy and takes a careful reader, but it delivers a complex and satisfying experience.
