His path crosses with La Linda, who offers him to work for a group of investors who back gamblers.
But he refuses. Later at a convention held by Major John Gordo, he encounters a young man named Kirk Beaufort, a man in search of revenge, as he believes Gordo was the reason his family was destroyed when his father, also former military, was dishonourably discharged for something that Gordo was responsible for.
