Wild Cards Deuces Down
On September 15, 1946, a biological weapon created by an alien race was accidentally detonated above the streets of New York City, killing countless numbers of men, women, and children. But those who survived the initial explosion soon began to wish they had died also, once they discovered they had been forever mutated by the virus unleashed in the blast.

I'm looking forward to the next episodes in this saga of mutant Americana." -Locus "Well written and suspenseful and a good read. . . . The authors had a lot of fun rewriting recent American history.
When all the cards are wild, there are only three things to do: Lay 'em … play 'em … or slay 'em. When the hardened Apache scout called Deuces is court-martialed for cold-blooded murder, he's sentenced to hang. But an appeal saves him from the noose-and he manages to escape on his way to prison in Texas. Relentless US Marshal Burt Green is charged with finding the killer.
