|The desolate town of Promise enjoys neither food nor water, precious resources obliterated by the horsemen Famine and Pestilence (in our previous two chapters!), both ghosts of dead men wronged by local land baron, Wilbur Fairless. Now comes the horseman War in the guise of another, quite petite, missing acquaintance of the old tycoon. She ignites battle with his current paramour, the sitting Mayor of the place, and all of them - along with gun-for-hire Cager Dobbin - play out their rivalries in ultra-violent fashion while eluding the starving new cannibals of Promise.|
