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.
