'Round these parts, folks tell lotsa legends. They say if you approach one of the jails in any town, and ask to see someone who calls himself a "Man Who Holds", then you'll be in for the horror of your life.

Only the toughest of men take on this challenge, and ain't a one who comes back normal. The things you see and the stuff you do brings you back a changed man. It's likely you ain't have half a mind left when you get outta that jail. But if you do it, then you're one o' the unlucky ones.

Because they say you come outta there holding onto something. Something dark, something evil, something dang foul. Coming outta there alive is like having the good lord personally kick your hide to Hell. And ain't a soul around who will be able to help you from the torture of your own head.

Except, of course, if you have the good fortune of meeting up with one Wyatt Black...


1. Black

Deep water all around me...

and circle sharks all about.

Deep in trouble had me turned around...

Man up and one man down.

4. Big Jack

5. Filthy Flint

You pretty women gather all 'round...

You can't pick up, not a single sound.

You feel you're winnin', that's what it's all about.

Knowin' you're winnin'...

and this could be the last time.

7. For the Love of God

Circle sharks all about you...

You come up and you don't know why?

Where goes a woman with a warm embrace...

Does a man walk in the hard rain? I'm amazed at the mess you found.

Comin' up, and they're standing next in line...

9. The Blackness

10. Gunfight at the Ol' Mansion

Give into none, an' that one comes...

Hear me hollerin' I get the most...

13. Breakin' a Deal

14. Epilogue: Daddy's Hat
