At seventeen, Emmett Dalton leaves his life as a cowboy behind to follow two of his older brothers into law enforcement in untamed Indian Territory during the winter of 1889. Circumstances change, however, and by the age of nineteen Emmett has become a full-fledged member of one of the west’s most notorious and most feared outlaw gangs, the Dalton Gang.
Torn between his adoration of his brother Bob, the gang’s leader, and his moral objections to the gang’s activities, Emmett eventually finds himself a key participant in one of the most infamous acts in the history of the Old West: the Dalton Gang’s daring double bank robbery in Coffeyville, Kansas, on October 5, 1892.
Based upon historical fact, In The Shadow of Death Alley examines the inner-workings of the Dalton Gang from the point of view of its youngest member -- and its sole survivor.
