A standard western tale of a gunslinger turning over a new leaf - almost.

For years a notoriously fast and ruthless gunslinger working for the highest bidder, Lemuel Roberts turned over a new leaf nearly overnight - giving up the name, but not the gun, and trying to atone for the wrongs he'd done. But his reputation keeps popping up to plague him, and there are still places where he's a wanted man.

Lem alone knows the origin of his nickname, The Deadeye Kid. Most folks assume it's something to do with his unerring aim, or that “them what falls within his sights end up dead”, but it's far simpler - Lem sees, hears, and speaks with ghosts. It's a talent he (and a few others) had from birth, though Lem spent years denying, ignoring, and drinking away the phantoms.

Lem and his sidekick the elusive Clarence Fanshaw (a British travel writer) wander the west, seeking people to help.
