Gaylord Dold (Samedi's Knapsack, etc.) offers spare prose and first-class entertainment in his stand-alone thriller, Six White Horses. After his Marine sergeant, Harry Wilde, frames him for drug possession, Palmer manages to break out of jail and escape to Mexico, but seven years will pass before Palmer catches up with Wilde, now a wealthy drug dealer-and the woman and child he left behind.
