Johnny Vermillion, handsome owner and featured thespian for the Prairie Rose Repertory Company, travels the West in the 1870s, entertaining folks in small towns like Purgatory, Spunk, and Lockjaw, and robbing their banks as he tries to make crime pay. Jauntily written and engagingly read by Jonathan Davis, the story presents colorful characters who are a troupe of good natured rogues. Davis quickly draws listeners in as co-conspirators. Davis differentiates the many male characters easily and finds unique female voices. The story is set "in a West that should have been but never quite was," and listeners will be cheering for the heroes to escape the villains and ride off into the sunset.
