The Gaslight Gunslinger: Book One of Gunslinger Matthew Slade by Sugar Lee Ryder
In 1878, San Francisco’s a boomtown awash in money, with Victorian-style bawdy houses and a loose sense of the law. Enter Matthew Slade. Formerly the Pinkerton Detective Agency’s best investigator, tracker, and gun-hand.
Upon his arrival, Slade rescues Mai Lee, a little Chinese girl, from a pair of thugs intent on kidnapping her. The girl’s wanted by Huang Sun, the leader of the dominant tong – a crime syndicate that runs opium dens, fan-tan parlors, and prostitution in the city.
But how can a gunslinger used to the open plains and prairies of the West deal with the criminal underworld of a crowded metropolis? Even with the help of new allies and the backing of a pair of bawdy-house madams, his odds are long at best!
