Overview

Money Land is the sequel to the bestselling and riveting, Blood Land, that introduced the Sheriff James Pruett Mystery/Thriller series. Big crime has come literally crashing down on the small town of Wind River, Wyoming.

When a small plane bound for the Canadian border carrying money for the Sustantivo Cartel smashes into the glacial Wind River Mountains, the event brings a heartless evil presence to one of the more remote places on earth.

The tail of the plane is discovered, empty. No drugs. No money. Shortly afterward, people start dying. When the cartel comes to town, Pruett will do anything within his power to save his town, his people, the land, and his family. Anything.

Once again in the sparse, gritty, starkly poetic styling of James Lee Burke, Tony Hillerman, and John D. MacDonald, R.S. Guthrie brings you his classic hero, at odds against the drug cartel, his own friends and citizens, and federal agencies that begin to sniff out a chance to attack an international crime organization.

Editorial Reviews

Caleb Pirtle
Okay. So what do you want in a great book. Do you want an unforgettable character? R. S. Guthrie certainly produces one in Money Land. His name is James Pruett...The Sheriff just may be one of the most fascinating characters step out in literature since Robert Parker's Spenser and James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux. Break the law, and he'll take you in. Threaten his town or his family, and you're a dead man walking.I've been around a long time. I've read a lot of great books. This is one of them.
Sevastian Winters
R.S. Guthrie is engaging from the word go. If you're not reading his stuff, you're missing out. Buy it. Read it. Devour it, buy another, another and another. Guthrie is a storyteller's storyteller. Another one out of the park!
Scott Bury
Guthrie knows how to create deep, realistic characters that have many sides to them. There are aspects of his heroes that enrage me, and sides to the villains that could make me cry. Even the tertiary characters, like the dirtbags who mostly annoy and distract the Sheriff, have nuances that I admire. Creating a novel filled with complex characters takes a writer of skill and subtlety.

5 stars.

Fasten your seatbelts, children--from the first, startling page MONEYLAND propels the reader on a suspense thrill ride filled with brutal twists and stunning turns. This second gem in the Sheriff James Pruett series will have you rooting for the good guys as they lock and load, and take on the most vicious drug lord imaginable.

With hauntingly beautiful prose, Guthrie propels the reader across an unforgiving Wyoming after the Sustantivo Cartel's small plane crashes...
