This book will definitely keep you reading, no doubt about it. There is a lot of violence, some warranted--some not. James Pruitt is the Sheriff in this small Wyoming town and when a murderous Mexican cartel ends up "picking on and occasionally murdering" several town residents--all because LOTS of money was lost in a plane crash--James has to revert to his Vietnam Days mind set to save the town and to prove that the people of Wyoming can not be terrorized!! Then it becomes personal---I didn't really expect the ending, but then in a way I did. This is the second book in this series. I did not read the first one and it can definitely be read as a stand alone. That doesn't mean I am not going to go back and get the first in the series. This is a seriously great writer!!
About the Book: (From Amazon)
Money Land is the sequel to the bestselling and riveting, Blood Land, that introduced the Sheriff James Pruett Mystery/Thriller series. Big crime has come literally crashing down on the small town of Wind River, Wyoming.
When a small plane bound for the Canadian border carrying money for the Sustantivo Cartel smashes into the glacial Wind River Mountains, the event brings a heartless evil presence to one of the more remote places on earth.
The tail of the plane is discovered, empty. No drugs. No money. Shortly afterward, people start dying. When the cartel comes to town, Pruett will do anything within his power to save his town, his people, the land, and his family. Anything.
Once again in the sparse, gritty, starkly poetic styling of James Lee Burke, Tony Hillerman, and John D. MacDonald, R.S. Guthrie brings you his classic hero, James Pruett, at odds against the Sustantivo drug cartel, his own friends and citizens, and federal agencies that have agendas beyond those printed on their Mission Statements.
