T1 Desert Star
Our story starts in Washington, 1870. Matthew Montgomery has an important post at the Ministry of Defense. He's rather an inflexible man who always respects the rules, which is why he warned his daughter, Helen, not to leave with that idiot, Glover. Of course, she did it anyway, and now she wants to come back and expects to be pardoned. But when Matthew arrives home the night of his Helen's return, he opens the door to find his wife and daughter slaughtered in the hallway, and a strange star engraved on his daughter's breast. His whole life is turned upside down. Traumatized, he starts out on the trail of the killers, with just one clue to help him on his way: a name - Jason Cauldry, from Topeka. Matthew wants to know why some stranger came such a long way just to etch that damn star onto his daughter's body, so he sets off on a long journey, crossing the Appalachian mountains and the Mid-West, all the way to Topeka. But what will he find there?
T2 Desert Star
Matthew Montgomery's quest to solve the mystery behind his wife and daughter's brutal murder has led him as far as the train tracks go: Topeka. This cautious, law-abiding man has come to this hub of sex, violence and alcohol in search of a man who goes by the name of Jason Cauldry, from whom he intends to get some answers about the death of his loved ones. And find him he does. Turns out Cauldry is lord and master of the town's brothels, enrolling all the Indian women unfortunate enough to cross his path. Desert Star was one of them. She's dead. Wakita is another, and she decides to help Montgomery find out why an assassin would trek all the way down to Washington to kill two women he'd never laid eyes upon, leaving a strange star engraved on his victim's body...
T3 Desert Star
Twenty years after the first volume of "Desert Star," with which Marini first made a name for himself, Desberg collaborates with Labiano for the prequel! In classic Western style, this time the story plays out in Indian territories. The conflicts between cowboys with neither faith nor morals and the God-fearing colonies will put an end to the peaceful existence of the Indian tribes. This marks the starting point of the tragedy of Desert Star, not yet a symbol of vengeance, but a feisty young Indian girl...
T4 Desert Star

Can Breeze salvage anything of his people's honor in the face of advancing "civilization"? And will he ever be reunited with his beloved Desert Star?
