Mustang Man: The Sacketts (Sacketts) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Filled with action, adventure, mystery, and historical detail, the Sackett saga is an unforgettable achievement by one of America's greatest storytellers. In Mustang Man, Louis L'Amour tells the tale of a man who lived by his own law-even if it meant being branded an outlaw.  Lost gold on the Santa Fe trail.

Nolan Sackett was running ahead of a posse when he stopped to help a wagon stuck on the plains.  But why was it stranded in the middle of nowhere with a beautiful-and murderous-young woman?  Nolan was trying to find out when he ran into Penelope Hume, another attractive lady.  She was the key to a cache of gold hidden in the mountains.  But to get the rightful heiress there first, Nolan would have to help her beat out jealous relations, paid assassins, and a killer without a conscience...  all maddened by gold fever.

Synopsis:

In Mustang Man, Louis L'Amour takes Nolan Sackett on a dangerous journey into family betrayal, greed, and murder.

When Nolan Sackett met Penelope Hume in a cantina at Borregos Plaza, the girl immediately captured his attention. That she was heir to a lost cache of gold didn't make her any less desirable. But Penelope isn't the only one after her grandfather's treasure; Sylvie, Ralph, and Andrew Karnes, distant relatives with no legal claim to the gold, are obsessed with claiming the Hume fortune for themselves. Their all-consuming sense of entitlement recklessly drives them to ambush and murder. Even if Sackett and Penelope are fortunate enough to escape this deadly trio and find the canyon where the gold is hidden, Indian legend has it that nothing will live there--no birds or insects. They say it is filled with the bones of men.
