Jack Sloan played his cards right, took the money and ran. Only now it seems he may not have run far enough. He’s a good guy caught in a really bad situation. Set in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, this is a riveting story of murder and revenge with a cast of characters who hurtle the plot forward toward a thrilling climax. In search of a peaceful life on a 26-acre ranch in the mountains, Jack instead finds himself embroiled in a con that may leave him and those he cares for most with a loss far greater than money. The action and intrigue grow as Jack wrestles with a ruthless assortment of bunko artists like Mattie Helms, who is as unscrupulous as she is beautiful and her goon, Irvin MacSwain, a psychotic, drug-using alcoholic killer who enjoys his work far too much. As Jack tries to reconcile his own killer instincts with his new life, betrayal and murder wait for him at every turn—but will the actions of one man help save the good guys in the end? Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves delivers a powerful punch that engages the reader until the last page.
