A taut, thrilling adventure story about buried treasure, a manhunt, and a woman determined to make a new life for herself in the old west.

It's the 19thcentury on theGulfCoast, a time of opportunity and lawlessness. After escaping theTexas brothel where she'd been a virtual prisoner, Lucinda Carter heads for Middle Bayou to meet her lover, who has a plan to make them both rich, chasing rumors of a pirate's buried treasure.

Meanwhile Nate Cannon, a young Texas policeman with a pure heart and a strong sense of justice, is on the hunt for a ruthless killer named McGill who has claimed the lives of men, women, and even children across the frontier. Who--if anyone--will survive when their paths finally cross?

As Lucinda and Nate's stories converge, guns are drawn, debts are paid, and Kathleen Kent delivers an unforgettable portrait of a woman who will stop at nothing to make a new life for herself.

An interesting story despite the predictable plot twists. The female character bugged the bejezzzzes out of me but I would try a different book by Kent cause I could see potential in her style.

I have liked her other books, but this one is a hard slug for me. The LP is definitely not what i consider large, so that adds to the slow progress & makes it less engaging.

THE OUTCASTS is a wonderful western, a brilliantly crafted character study, and a heartbreaking look at the good and evil inside us.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
