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 nineteenth century on the Gulf Coast, a time of
opportunity and lawlessness. After escaping the Texas brothel where she’d essentially
been prisoner, Lucinda Carter heads for Middle Bayou to meet her lover, who had
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. Download and start listening now!
