"Mackie dreaded the mail." From the simple beginning, Peter Abrahams opens the curtains on a mesmerizing world down on the Mexican border, a world of complex and passionate people whose ambitions will lead them on a relentless collision course, a desert world that rises to the mythic in Their Wildest Dreams. The suspense will grab you and not let you go, the surprises will shock you, but in the end it will be the wonderful characters who remain in your mind. Characters like Mackie Larkin, a suburban mother desperate for money, who finds she can earn it as a stripper; Kevin Larkin, her ex-husband whose get-rich-quick schemes left her with a mountain of debt, and who now dreams up an even better one; Lianne, their beautiful, impulsive teenage daughter, for whom almost anything, even bank robbery, is possible; Jimmy Marz, the wrangler Lianne loves, who gets a dangerous one-time offer that could take him to the life he's always wanted; Buck Samsonov, the charismatic strip-club owner building a southwestern empire in the lawless style of a nineteenth-century robber baron; Clay Krupsha, a twenty-first century captain of detectives in a border town where no crime is what it seems; and Nicholas Loeb, a struggling mystery writer whose encounter with an unstable muse entangles him in a web of true crime more mysterious than anything he imagined.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 1/12/2014

    " Probably categorized as a thriller, though more interesting than thrilling. Crazy druggie dude, smart poor boy on scholarship, sick-rich twin sisters, and secret tunnels underneath the grounds of a selective private college. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frances | 10/28/2013

    " after I read Oblivion - I added this thriller to my list - satisfying! "

    " Pathetic. Bland, never developed any feelings for any of the characters. Waste of time and money ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Henry | 10/16/2013

    " I wouldn't normally rate this type of book so high, but Peter Abrahams captured my attention and the ending was unusual enough to make it special. I really enjoyed reading this book. "

    " Usually a great author. This book is not indicative of his writing talent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 5/20/2013

    " The first half of the book was really engrossing. The second half, not so much. I did enjoy how all the characters diverged together by the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Greer | 3/13/2012

    " Abrahams is a delicious writer. I read anything by him in a short sitting. This novel is one of his best: a psycho thriller type deal with a great plot and surprising ending. You are missing out if you haven't read Abrahams. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judy Price | 2/7/2012

    " Way more foul language than necessary, story line gets lost in the 'back and forth'. "
