Fleeing his ruined reputation, frontier newspaper man Kepler arrives in the Colorado mining town of Brokeheart in the hopes of making a fresh start. As he begins to report the goings on of Brokeheart and the conditions at the mine, Kepler attracts attention from all quarters, from the mysterious European aristocrat who hires him to oversee the construction of a hunting lodge to the unsavory foreman of the Brokeheart mine.
As tension thickens in Brokeheart, a spate of mysterious deaths trouble Kepler. Though the sheriff and townspeople wave them off as accidents and suicide, the disturbing marks on the bodies leave Kepler wondering if something more sinister is going on. As danger looms on every side, will Kepler survive long enough to save Brokeheart?
