Gunslingers and Shadows: an Old Santa Fe adventure

George Vorre

In the lawless Wild West of Santa Fe, Doña Tules finds herself in a perilous game of survival as a new threat emerges. A notorious gunslinger known only as "The Shadow" arrives in town, bringing with them a reign of terror. Doña Tules becomes the target of The Shadow's wrath as her power and influence threaten their plans for control over the region.

As danger lurks at every turn, Doña Tules must navigate treacherous alliances, outsmart her adversaries, and confront her own inner demons to protect herself and the community she has fought so hard to build. Meanwhile, Charles Bent, acting civil governor, struggles to maintain order while battling his own personal demons. His path collides with Doña Tules as they both fight against the rising tide of violence and lawlessness that threatens to tear Santa Fe apart.

As if this isn't enough, a band of outlaws led by a charismatic but ruthless leader begins to wreak havoc on Santa Fe. They strike fear into the hearts of both American occupiers and Mexican civilians, and lawlessness threatens to consume the town.

Brigadier general Stephen Watts Kearny faces mounting pressure from Washington to maintain control over Santa Fe. As tensions between American occupiers and Mexican civilians escalate, Kearny must find a delicate balance between enforcing military authority and addressing the grievances of the local population. He becomes entangled in a political web where loyalties are tested, alliances are forged, and secrets are unveiled.

Doña Tules finds herself entangled in a larger conspiracy that extends beyond Santa Fe, involving influential figures from both the American and Mexican sides of the conflict. The repercussions of Kearny's actions in Santa Fe could have far-reaching consequences, leading to new challenges and power struggles within the American military.
