Out of the Great American West, Book 5 in THE WELLS FARGO TRAIL
Set in the 1870s in the desert of northern Arizona, The Desert Hawks opens with an action-filled story guaranteed to hold the interest of any Western buff. This new book entwines mystery and suspense in the lives of villains, Indians, innocent bystanders, and Zachary Cobb. Each has made choices to survive the challenges of a harsh frontier, and each must face the consequences in a tale of intriguing paths that cross unaware.
Zac Cobb, an agent for the Wells Fargo Company, is on assignment in Arizona to track down the bandits robbing army payrolls and murdering the armed escorts. The tension mounts when the habits of one of the men Zac is tracking become disturbingly familiar. The leader of the outlaw gang turns out to be Julian, his embittered brother, whom Zac hasn't seen since he disappeared during the Civil War.
The two brothers face off in a confrontation between good and evil as they are thrown together in an attempt to run the rapids of the Colorado River to escape a band of marauding Indians. Innocent people become entangled in the embroiled fight for survival between Zac and Julian.
