About the Books
The Sangre de Cristo Mountains, The Blood of Christ, provide the backdrop for Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves, a tale of murder, revenge and redemption. Jack Sloan, businessman, gambler, casino operator, and tough guy is trapped by two con artists and kills them to escape. Three years later, he’s built a new life with his wife, Darlene, but knows payback is on the way.
It comes in the shape of two hard cases bent on avenging their partners’ deaths. The beautiful Mattie is the brains behind the crew, while Irvine, a psychotic who wields a knife, plays her main muscle.
The two track down Jack and plot their attack. Jack and his enemies weigh the risks of confrontation and then prepare for the battle of their lives. But no matter how carefully they plan, it’s still a crapshoot, and the outcome is in doubt until the end.
“May you wander over the face of the earth forever.” – Traditional Gypsy Curse
34 Degrees North is the latitude of Juarez and El Paso – two cities with one soul – or 17 Degrees North for each. Jack Sloan follows a trail between Juarez and Santa Fe with several stops along the way.
The novel kicks off in the barrancas of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe with Jack’s discovery of a satchel full of cash. Jack tells his wife Darlene about his find, and they’re both sucked into the most dangerous mystery of their lives, because somewhere between Juarez and Santa Fe, a relentless killer stalks his victims and searches for his money.
17 Degrees North: A Jack Sloan Novel is the second book in the action-packed Border Wars Trilogy.
A young girl is murdered on a dark highway during the winter of 1995. Fifteen years later, the crime sets in motion a string of events that provoke carnage and mayhem. Jack Sloan and his girlfriend, Darlene, are caught in the middle. It’s up to them to find a way out.
Readers of other Jack Sloan novels will recognize the geography of the beautiful barrancas and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Much of the action takes place near Flagstaff in and around the ponderosa pine forests that climb to the timberline.
When you read The Bridge of the Americas: A Jack Sloan Novel, you will take a dangerous trip through the Southwestern United States, with stops in El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. The drug wars created the story, now Jack Sloan writes the conclusion.
