Riassunto: A devastating Wall Street Crash has plunged the U.S. into a second Great Depression. The unemployment rate hovers near 40%. Millions are homeless, roaming the country in search of food and work and two pennies to rub together. Vagabonds ride freight trains. Hobo camps have popped up everywhere. The American landscape is dangerous, teeming with violent predators. Only the strong and fearless survive in this Mad Max milieu where everything, including human life, is up for grabs. Masquerading as a hobo, Derek Parnell-newly wealthy thanks to an anonymous benefactor-rides the rails through the vast Southwest, searching for the killers of his wife and daughter. He's also looking for his mysterious financier-a man known to him only as Croesus-and the reasons behind his inexplicable financial gift. Parnell's journey initially takes him and his love, Elaine, from Flagstaff to Sedona, where they meet with a gypsy fortuneteller. Madame Crystal instructs them to go to Colorado and the Mesa Verde Ancestral Pueblo cliff dwellings to meet with an operative who goes by the code name of Thor. Thor suggests to Parnell that his daughter is still alive. Further clues lead Parnell and Elaine to a connected high-roller in Las Vegas and a fringe anti-government paramilitary group, The Liberty Dogs, in the remote wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. Within the hobo community, Derek Parnell is known as "King Midas," the legend with the golden touch, a man most generous with his money. But to his enemies Parnell is "The Man with Tombstone Eyes," a ruthless vigilante-judge, jury, and executioner. Parnell's mindset? "Karma determines who gets to live or die, and sometimes karma has to be helped along a little." On his search for elusive truths, Derek Parnell leaves a path of death and destruction in his wake. And what he discovers along the way is startling and life-changing.
