Michael Kent enjoys his life in sunny California as one of the world’s most sought-after experts on antique firearms. A new commission promises to be the most lucrative so far, but it turns out to be the most dangerous and terrifying job of his career.

When the mysterious Gorgo Conway hires Michael to search for the Colt 45 of legendary pistolero Johnny Ringo, Michael Kent has no idea that the hunt for the Peacemaker would lead him from the archives of Colt Firearms Manufacturing across continents right into the center of the Catholic church.

Michael´s research reveals shocking, deadly murders connecting the six-shooter to repeated tragedies across decades. But how is that possible?

The truth behind Johnny Ringo´s gun challenges Michael´s faith and sanity in a race against time. His only allies are two Benedictine monks and their wisdom concerning a deadly curse.
