A novel of the American West narrates the story of a dying man's attempts to make peace with his daughter, their struggle to rescue his granddaughter from renegades and slave traders, and his lifelong search for inner peace.
The Last Ride is the story of Maggie Gilkeson, a young woman raising her two daughters in an isolated and lawless wilderness.
When her oldest daughter is kidnapped by a psychopathic killer with mystical powers, Maggie is forced to re-unite with her long estranged father to rescue her. The killer and his brutal cult of desperados have kidnapped several other teenage girls, leaving a trail of death and horror across the desolate landscape of the American Southwest. Maggie and her father are in a race against time to catch up with the renegades and save her daughter, before they cross the Mexican border and disappear forever.
The Last Ride is the story of a race against time and death, a powerful tale of rescue and reconciliation that provides a haunting insight into our instincts of kinship and need for beliefs.
