Atticus Riot is an ex-gambler turned detective, but after twenty years of roaming the Barbary Coast, he’s about to toss the game for good. After his partner Ravenwood is savagely murdered, he wants nothing more than to rid himself of his dead partner’s legacy and retire. But man plans and God laughs: the young wife of a prosperous businessman is abducted. Two separate ransom notes are sent to two different relations, leaving the police baffled. Reluctantly, as a final favor to an old friend, Riot takes on the case, feeling half a man without the brilliant Ravenwood.
