Based on a true event in Texas history, CRUSH is a lively and all too human tale of life in the old West when frontier ways collide with a fast-moving new civilization.
The honorable judge Sherman O'Dell has given former lawman Farley Dant a choice: be hanged for murder or become His marshal is Crush,Texas. It's a bitter choice because Farley knows he's dealing with the most crooked politician this side of Dallas. O'Dell has his fingers in everything-banks, real estate, the new saloon and dance hall. What else could he have in mind for Crush, a town being buildt by promoters to stage a spectacular "train crash."
If O'Dell were Farley's only problem he might be able to handle him. but he also has to deal with an amorous lady of the night who has her own plans for Farley's future. Even worse are a blue-stocking photographer from New York named Amanda Bloomer McCoy and her pistol-packing Pinkerton agent sister. Farley is in a tug-of-war between truth and justice, a bad dream and a nightmare. If he can only hang on to his sanity until after the great crash.
