About this product
- DescriptionSPIRIT RANCH is the story of Nicholas Morgan, a one-time cowboy, former black ops veteran, and moderately successful writer who moves to the desert out beyond Palm Springs to create a peaceful oasis for himself and his horses, and indulge his passion for polo. Expecting a place where he can write and ride in peace and eventually bring the love of his life, what he finds instead is the ghost of a woman murdered in the 1930's who becomes a presence that will t be igred. Morgan's obsession to always right a wrong motivates him to try to bring peace to the restless souls that surround him at the ranch. To do so he must use his Mexican connections from the polo world to help him descend into the dark underbelly of the desert, a world driven by drugs, the Mexican Mafia, gambling, hate, and death. The often-quirky cast of characters including a private detective from Malibu and Morgan's long-time girlfriend, a major fashion buyer, lead him from stylish Beverly Hills to the seedy ir-ish world of old time Hollywood, from the exotic pursuit of the world's oldest sport to the back roads of Mexican life and its arcane rituals. Before he can build the life he craves, Morgan is forced to re-evaluate his carefully held tions of reality, solve the mysteries that haunt his ranch, and rely once again on the violence he thought he had left behind. At once a compelling quest, a love story, and a love affair with the baroque desert, SPIRIT RANCH weaves poetic descriptions of the still relatively unkwn land and its myriad of characters into a mysterious and riveting tapestry.
