The apocalypse sucks... especially when you're broke!
All “Wild” Alice West wants is to be a respected bounty hunter and make some legitimate cash to fill her empty coffers. But in the post-apocalyptic world of the Skillet, there is no room for a woman doing a “man’s job.”
Enter Mr. Treen: gambler, gunslinger, albino. Alice believes that by hiring the mysterious card sharp, she can give her business the legitimacy it needs. But Mr. Treen has his own secrets — some of them dark. And once these two misfits get together, you can be sure the Skillet will never be the same again!
Includes all three novels in the critically acclaimed series: Book I: The Ace of Spades, Book II: The Queen of Hearts and Book III: The King of Swords, all in one volume!
