When buffalo hide hunter Quentin McLeod rescues Carlotta Mainord, a Texas ranch woman taken captive by Comanche raiders, the two survive battles with the Comanches, flash floods and white brigands only to wind up in even more dangerous straits when they make it to apparent safety in Ft. Sumner New Mexico. Carlotta Mainord, injured and helpless in a coma, is placed under the care of Edward Richards, an English expatriate and respected rancher who secretly trades with Comanche raiders, especially dealing with women captives who he sells into slavery in Mexico. McLeod is accused of being a comanchero as well as the injurer of Carlotta Mainord and faces both lynch mobs and a legal hanging jury. It turns out that both Quentin McLeod and Carlotta Mainord have only begun their fight for survival!
"Take a walk on the wild side of history with story teller extraordinaire, Billy Moore as he takes Quentin McLeod on an adventure for survival. The nonstop action in this book keeps you turning pages to see what happens next. Mr. Moore has developed strong, thought out characters that will draw you in to see how they will get through the next turn in this adventure. Modern topics that are not as modern as you may believe are approached in this novel – human trafficking, murder and being presumed guilty before being proven guilty. And just when you see you have finished the book you ask yourself, “Where is Rebecca?” This novel will leave you waiting for more, so Mr. Moore, when can we expect the next one?"
