With this revelation came a morbid, cynical twist to fate that would forever change each participants life forever. * * * An adventurous tale about Doctor John Henry Holliday. A very educated and refined southern boy, who had survived the Civil War, and grew up to become a respected Dentist, but became plagued with tuberculosis at a very young age, and traded his status in life, along with family and friends in Georgia, to travel west and try to improve his health. However, in the course of time he became a gambler, fearless gunfighter, and at times would engage in wild business ventures. His life has intrigued us because he was unusual and not by any means typical to most men who would have visited wild and unsettled cow towns. Written from a fresh prospective, of what could have been true in the dark secretive life of one of America's legendary western hero's. He is joined by his best friend and colleague, Wyatt Earp, as well as a companion, and known prostitute, Kate Fisher, who was better known as "Big Nose Kate," and his beloved cousin, Martha Ann Holliday, whom Doc had always had a special bond with, and whom became a nun after Doc left and went west. This is a story full of surprises, cattle rustling, murder, gambling, deceitful acquaintances and adventurous fun. This is the first of five highly anticipated fictional novels, others will be about growing up during the Civil War, traveling from one cow town to another, Tombstone adventures, and the revealing of many secrets that one man, none other than the infamous Doc Holliday, held deep within his ravaged body. So sit down, Partner, saddle up and enjoy this heart-pounding ride.
