Calendar of Events for Hal Simmons

Mystery & Adventure in the New West, Hal Simmons
Clear Light Publishing, ISBN 13: 978-1-57416-094-9 and ISBN 10: 1-57416-094-X, 320 pages, 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, $14.95, September 2008

“In this mystery-adventure, Magic Lance author Hal Simmons presents a collision of forces: the dream of a casino-enriched Indian tribe to form a Native American state, and the dream of a small landowner named Lance Burnett to live the traditions of the West. The tribe’s land ambitions send hot signals all the way to Washington, D.C. Powerful politicians, a billionaire landholder, environmentalists and anti-gambling groups join the fray.
“Along the way, Lance Burnett is entranced with two beautiful women, one his wife, who wants to leave him, the other a sensual young ranch manager who wants to join him.
“Magic Lance is more than an exciting read. It’s an inside look at the complex worlds of tribal gambling casinos and Indian country land rights. Besides, it is beautifully written.”
—Tony Hillerman
