Editorial Reviews


This tightly written novel appears, on the surface, to be a typical genre piece, but readers who delve below will find both a subtle and though-provoking revenge story and a hero who is torn between his hatred of one man and his need to save a friend from himself. -Booklist --Booklist

About the Author

The Wild Card is the third novel in Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton's Luck of the Draw series. The sisters are co-authors of Stone of Vengeance, which takes place in the modern-day West, the Ardis Cole Mystery Series, and a play set at a poker table, Dead Man's Hand. Both writers are drawn to the western setting, which has provided a backdrop for much of their work. Loretta, who taught school at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, now resides in Junction City, Kansas. Vickie, whose interested include history and criminal justice, lives in Hutchinson, Kansas.

In their Luck of the Draw novels—The Fifth Ace and The Devil’s Game, the writing team of Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton introduce memorable characters like Drew Woodson and Tommy Garth. Though ten years younger than himself, Drew takes Tommy under his wing as a surrogate son. The two men invest their fortunes in the Lyra Shay gold mine expecting their lives to change for the better.

In The Wild Card, Tommy abuses Drew’s trust and loses his share of the Lyra Shay to scoundrel Matt Ferris, Drew’s arch-enemy. Thus begins a series of deceptions from enemies and friends that could destroy Drew and the lives of the people he loves the most.

Jackson and Britton bring the old west alive in this fast paced Western set in 1878 Leland, Colorado. The scenes painted by this author team are ready for the big screen and the characters are three-dimensional. I highly recommend that any Western fan curl up and enjoy the The Wild Card.
