The story is always the same.

Flaming red hair. A bowler hat. A fast gun.

A corpse.

Almeida, known as "Bad News" to the authorities, is a deadly idealist with a vengeful hunger for justice. She's not proud of the blood on her hands, but who else is going to take care of the bad guys?

Across the dry, barren land of Dust, a lone bounty hunter pieces together clues that may just lead to her downfall, and perhaps reveal some of the sinister secrets of the City as well.
