Like Rum-Drunk Angels

Enfield returns in spring with a new publisher and a new take on the genre. Like Rum-Drunk Angels follows the exploits of the Blackstone Temple Gang, whose members include outlaw Bob Temple and Francis Blackstone, a goodhearted 14-year-old who plans to woo the mayor’s daughter by robbing a bank.
