Texas, 2033. Black Deker and his partner, Top Chop, recover the Lady in the Dark, an old Mississippi steamboat patched together with the remnants of old war materials. Scrap dealers by trade, they use the boat to salvage the scrap from battles fought in the rivers and jungles of the new state.
But Black Deker decides to take on an unusual assignment: rescue A. Bierce (a prisoner of the fearsome Coronel Snark), from death row at the China maximum-security prison in Nuevo León.
The last instalment from the Fernando De Felipe library, which collects the complete works of the Aragonese author in a series of new editions with additional unpublished material.
