A Hard-Kept Secret

According to the book description of A Hard Kept Secret, “Ross Brandon's heroes have always been cowboys. Even after years as a successful Washington, D.C. attorney, Ross has never lost a deep-seated longing to be in the great outdoors, riding his trusty steed across the frontier. When a friend suggests they spend their vacation following the trail of one of L'Amour's better-known characters, Sackett, Ross agrees immediately. Their plan is to find and visit as many of the places mentioned in the novel as possible, although they would do it astride motorcycles rather than horses. Their pilgrimage starts out deceptively simply, but they soon encounter far more than they bargained for, and end up in a deadly struggle for their lives against vicious modern-day outlaws. This then is a story of discovery, drama, danger, and adventure — all the while paying homage to Louis L'Amour.”
