The Outcasts

The Outcasts

A Novel

A taut, thrilling adventure story about buried treasure, a manhunt, and a woman determined to make a new life for herself in the old west.

It’s the 19th century on the Gulf Coast, a time of opportunity and lawlessness. After escaping the Texas brothel where she’d been a virtual prisoner, Lucinda Carter heads for Middle Bayou to meet her lover, who has a plan to make them both rich, chasing rumors of a pirate’s buried treasure.

Meanwhile, Nate Cannon, a young Texas policeman with a pure heart and a strong sense of justice, is on the hunt for a ruthless killer named McGill who has claimed the lives of men, women, and even children across the frontier.

Who — if anyone — will survive when their paths finally cross? As Lucinda and Nate’s stories converge, guns are drawn, debts are paid, and Kathleen Kent delivers an unforgettable portrait of a woman who will stop at nothing to make a new life for herself.

PRAISE FOR THE OUTCASTS:

"THE OUTCASTS is well-written, tightly plotted and full of ingenious twists....Like the rotgut poured at some dusty Old West saloon, this tale has a wicked kick to it."—Shawna Seed, Dallas Morning News
"A cinematic but refreshingly unsentimental take on the classic Western, starring a woman who is no romantic heroine, but a definite survivor."
Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
"[A] mastery of historical fiction."
Diana Andro, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"[A] rollicking tale."
Steve Bennett, San Antonio Express-News
