Dead Man's BooteBook - 2016
Clay Andrews feels like a dead man, adrift in darkness. But he's also searching, and in 1869 he has ridden to the Pecos River to find answers. Back in Central Texas, Clay's sister died, and on this river he might learn why. The person responsible may have fled here, but no one enters this no-man'sland except at his own peril. Comanches are on the prowl, and across the Pecos, Mescalero Apaches range all the way to the Guadalupe Mountains. In a dead man's boot, Clay finds a map to rumored gold in the Guadalupes. When Comanches approach, he flees upriver and finds Lil Casner at a lone schooner. Long abused in an arranged marriage, she must fend for herself while her obsessed husband combs the Pecos for the very map Clay has discovered. Comanche attacks . . . a kidnapping . . . a chase through Apache country to Skeleton Cave and on to the Guadalupes. For Clay, the answers will never come unless he rides into a mountain range where Indian spirits may guard a golden hoard.
