Matthew pulled back on the reins and stared openmouthed as the naked girl streaked into the woods. He almost had his horse under control when the front door slammed open and Caleb Barbour, half dressed and looking like a wild man, leaped off the porch and pounded after Roxanne.
-- Worthy Brown's Daughter by Phillip Margolin. This exciting new novel is available now for pre-order and will be released January 21.
Margolin is the popular author of 17 best-selling contemporary thrillers inspired by his own career as a criminal defense attorney. His prior hits include Supreme Justice, Executive Privilege, and The Last Innocent Man.
In Worthy Brown's Daughter, Margolin takes a break from Washingon, D. C. drama and serial killers to go back to 1860 Oregon for a story involving a freed slave accused of murder and the rescue of his captive 15-year-old daughter.
Based on a true story (see Breaking Chain: Slavery on Trial in the Oregon Territory by Gregory R. Nokes), Worthy Brown's Daughter is an exciting Wild West adventure with serious themes.
