Book is set in 1863 as war is going on in US and Mexico, with other conflicts arising. It is all fueled by gold and the fight for power. One man is in charge of the Trust and he must decide if it is all worth the risks.

This was a basic good vs evil story, and it did not pull me into the story. I found myself speed reading through passages to get through the book.

Violence between Mexico and U.S. as war rages in the 1863. It is fueled by gold and the need for power. One man must decide if it is worth the risk. A typical good versus evil storyline which was a bit boring.
