Buckskin Brigades

Summary

It’s 1806. A young republic just three decades old - the United States of America - is about to make a great push westward, across the Mississippi, into a wild, beautiful, and dangerous land. A territory of towering mountains and violent waters, of icy glaciers and searing deserts. The great northwest.  It is a time and a place where fortunes will be made, destinies will be revealed, and legends will rise.  Buckskin Brigades is the epic saga of one such legend. They call him Yellow Hair, a white man raised by Blackfeet Indians who has vowed to defend his adopted land and people against the onslaught from the east.  Spurred by their greed and renowned for their ruthlessness, fur traders have already crossed into the forbidden hunting grounds of the Blackfeet. Now Yellow Hair must undertake a treacherous adventure across a vast uncharted wilderness to face an unrelenting enemy.  Filled with action, passion, and drama, Buckskin Brigades is a panoramic journey across the pages of American history - the story of a proud, courageous man pushed to the limits of endurance, and of a country on the threshold of a bloody conflict that will change it forever.  “Mr. Hubbard has reversed a time-honored formula and has given a thriller to which, at the end of every chapter or so, another paleface bites the dust....[has] an enthusiasm, even a freshness and sparkle, decidedly rare in this type of romance.” (New York Times)

Summary

A collection of five suspenseful gems by master storyteller Frederick Forsyth, best-selling author of The Day of the Jackal and The Odessa File. Justice does not always come easily, and it comes in many guises. On the seedier side of London, a shopkeeper witnesses a brutal beating in The Veteran. In a better neighborhood, a famous London auction house is scammed in The Art of the Matter. And there's more. The other stories venture to a persecution in 16th century Sienna, a mid-flight drug smuggling heist, and the lone survivor of Custer's Last Stand. The voices of narrators Patrick MacNee, Bruce Boxleitner, and Christopher Casanove truly compliments the author's genius. Mixing together the elements of great suspense - revenge, mystery, murder and deception - this collection is Forsyth at his best.

Stalking Horse

Summary

Raymond Starbuck ruined star jockey Colley Killebrew's reputation - so why is Colley cutting a deal with him? When Colley was barred from the track after a race-fixing scandal, he also lost his irresistible redhead girlfriend, Francie Dorn. Starbuck says that if Colley can keep some unsavory cronies from muscling in on the old Magnolia Park track, he'll give Colley $10,000 - and Francie's address. Is this the opportunity he's been waiting for, or will Colley blow his chance when Starbuck's leggy, blonde daughter Lea turns up - a woman who's as skilled at seducing men as she is at blowing them away?
