In 1883, the residents of the small town of Cactus Gulch near the Grand Canyon assembled to honor prospector and gold mine owner Dusty Jones.​ Jones had arrived in town five years before, flat broke and relying upon the generosity of local residents to help him get by.

He struck gold and became the sole owner of the TAqIlA mine. (He named it after his favorite drink, but Dusty never could spell.) Key citizens of Cactus Gulch agreed to honor Dusty. Each one rose to say a few words about him and his contributions to the community.

Then, it was Dusty's turn. After speaking his mind, Dusty raised a glass of Gila Gold, his favorite brand of tequila, sat down and, a few minutes later, slumped over in his chair. He was dead.

The marshal took charge of the investigation and suspects were interrogated. But who killed Dusty Jones? And would the secrets of his mysterious mine ever be uncovered? It would take a slew of deputies to get to the truth.
