Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692426779, Paperback)

(Suspense romance) A man and a woman, each searching for missing family members, clash amid a Nevada silver rush scheme that leaves both unsure who to trust--and scrambling to stay alive. Wade Forester must stay in the shadows because, it seems, everyone has reason to shoot him. His father has disappeared, and his sister won’t speak a word to anyone. Beautiful Patricia Laughlin is searching for her family as well. Few people gain her trust or approval, though powerful landowner Bridger Calhoun just might be the man to do it. After a clash throws them to opposite sides, Wade must decide if risking his life to help Patricia is worth the trouble. Bridger must win Patricia’s heart, and Patricia must learn which killer to trust with her life. Set in Nevada’s silver rush, and reminiscent of Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour, the writing comes from intimate knowledge of the era and area. Having lived off the land, Wilcox depended on his wit, grit, and strength—and that of his animals—for survival, just as these characters do. Wilcox and Beckstrand weave authentic detail, care for the land and its creatures, and folksy vernacular into a thriller that will make your heart pound and fill your lungs with the “rarefied air” of the old Sierra Nevada Mountains. Clean. Comes with additional short story. Diverse characters, safe for family (ages 14 & up), 54,000 words, 200 pages. Also an ebook--soon a graphic novel and audiobook. Simultaneously published as To Swallow the Earth (young adult western mystery).
