"If you liked Deadwood, you're gonna love this book!" ~Jackie


A taut, thrilling adventure story about buried treasure, a manhunt, and a woman determined to make a new life for herself in the old west.

It's the 19th century on the Gulf Coast, a time of opportunity and lawlessness. After escaping the Texas brothel where she'd been a virtual prisoner, Lucinda Carter heads for Middle Bayou to meet her lover, who has a plan to make them both rich, chasing rumors of a pirate's buried treasure.

Meanwhile Nate Cannon, a young Texas policeman with a pure heart and a strong sense of justice, is on the hunt for a ruthless killer named McGill who has claimed the lives of men, women, and even children across the frontier. Who--if anyone--will survive when their paths finally cross?

As Lucinda and Nate's stories converge, guns are drawn, debts are paid, and Kathleen Kent delivers an unforgettable portrait of a woman who will stop at nothing to make a new life for herself.

Jackie says:
"This is a whole new version of the wild west, or at least new to me.  It involves a runaway prostitute, a very young and green Texas policeman, two jaded rangers with an obsession for one specific criminal, and buried treasure.  There are plenty of twists and turns in this book, and it paces well.  This would be a great book for fans of Deadwood and its like."
