Way back when, Danny Southern, Henry Read, and Red Clybourne were ten-year-olds together in Kansas, peeping on naked girls and stealing whiskey. As they started growing whiskers, they moved on to mugging passed-out drunks and robbing payrolls. But now, when they accidentally kill a man, their lucky streak of never getting caught is about to fizzle and burn.
To avoid the gallows, they have to run. But since they only know how to gamble and steal, the young men are in for the ride of their lives, full of narrow misses and loose women. And when “one for all and all for one” turns into two against one, not all of them will remain standing.
