Summary
The year is 1877, automations and steam-powered dirigible gunships have transformed the United States in the aftermath of the Civil War. All of the country's land west of the Mississippi was sold to Russia nearly fifty years earlier, and Little Russia, as it's now called, is ruled by the son of Tsar Alexander II. The United States is being run as a police state by former secretary of war Edward Stanton, a power-hungry criminal who rules with an iron fist. Liam McCool is an outlaw, known among other crooks as King of the Cracksmen. But his glory days as a safecracker and the head of a powerful New york gang end when he's caught red-handed. Threatened with prison unless he informs on his own brethren fighting a guerilla war against Stanton's tyranny, McCool's been biding his time, trying to keep the heart of him long enough to escape to San Francisco with his sweetheart Maggie. But when she turns up murdered, McCool discovers a trail of breadcrombs that lead all the way up to the top of Stanton's criminal organization
