It's the 19th Century on the Gulf Coast, a time of guns, lawmen, and lawlessness. Nathan, a young man with a pure heart and strong sense of justice, enlists in the Texas Rangers, joining forces with a captain and a doctor on a manhunt for a dangerous serial killer. The Rangers chase the murderer across the entire expanse of Texas to the steamy shores of the Middle Bayou, where rumors of pirate Jean Lafitte's buried treasure have drawn a lively collection of good guys, bad guys, and a former prostitute named Lucinda - who might be a little bit of both. Lucinda recently settled in Middle Bayou, after escaping from the Texas brothel where she had been a virtual prisoner. She is supposed to meet her lover, who has a plan to make them both rich. But when those plans run afoul, Lucinda finds herself on the run again, desperately trying to please and appease her dangerous lover. Nathan is close on their trail as they cross the border into New Orleans, but it's unclear who - if anyone - will survive when their paths finally cross. THE OUTCASTS is a page-turning adventure story about greed, love, betrayal, redemption - and the fight to bring order to a chaotic, lawless place.

display_description "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."--
