Epic and intimate, this novel offers voice to the genuine women and men whose lives have been replaced eternally via these deadly thirty seconds in Tombstone. At its center is the lady at the back of the parable: Josephine Sarah Marcus, who enjoyed Wyatt Earp for forty-nine years and who rigorously chipped away on the fact till she had crafted the heroic legend that might turn into the epitaph her husband deserved.
