In the 1850 into the 1900s gambling was prevalent in the
Old West. Almost all cowboys, miners,
and settlers played games of chance.
Gambling was an integral part of their risk-taking nature. This environment, one of quick profit (or
loss), of mystery, excitement, and vengeance, seemed a perfect setting for our
gambling series, The Luck of the Draw.
In this three-book series, Drew Woodson, along with his
young, devil-may care partner Tommy Garth, experience danger and adventure as
they try their luck at mining and at the poker table. The series consists of three standalone
novels. An over-arching theme concerning
Tommy’s past spans all three books.
The Devil's Game
The first book of the series finds Drew Woodson winning
a mining claim from Blackjack Logan in a poker game. But the minute he yields a lucky strike,
Blackjack and his gang kidnap Tommy and steal the gold. Drew must tell Tommy’s fiancé, Celene, who he
Drew secretly has deep feelings for himself, that Tommy has been kidnapped and
most likely has been murdered by the bandits. When Drew finds one of the bandits hanged, he
must face the possibility that his own partner has betrayed him. Determined to discover the truth or die, Drew
is forced to become a player in The
The Fifth Ace
