This sixth installment of Len Levinson's Pecos Kid series finds eighteen-year old Duane Braddock on the run to Mexico after being wanted for a string of murders in Texas. The Pecos Kid finds himself taking comfort with the wife of a wealthy aristocrat, but their idyll doesn't last long, seeing as bounty hunters are searching for him. Fred Berman has a gruff timbre that lends itself greatly to Levinson's exciting story, which is full of gritty drama, intrigue, and vivid descriptions of a Mexican landscape that provides the perfect backdrop for this wild tale.
On the dodge south of the border, Duane Braddock lands in a luxurious Mexican hacienda, where he befriends a powerful nobleman’s lonely wife. It’s only a matter of time before hot lead starts flying, especially when American bounty hunters are closing in on the Pecos Kid, Apache have been seen in the vicinity, and his former great love, Miss Vanessa Fontaine, is hot on his trail.
But Duane Braddock is 18 years old, and thinks he can handle anything. His problem is that Lady Luck might not agree.
