More About This Book

Overview

The Broken R is the Robinson's family ranch in a small western community. William Robinson, aka, "Wild Bill," ran the ranch and his large family with a firm hand as he did his company, Simplicity. Wild Bill went through enormous struggles and hard times to make his company into a multi-billion dollar enterprise, but there is a sinister mystery surrounding Simplicity. And murder is on the minds of many who want their share.

Wild Bill was, to his family and friends, the definition of a traditional cowboy. But even cowboys die and Bill was no exception. On the day of Wild Bill's funeral, his estranged youngest son, Sam returns. Sam decides to stay after learning a dark secret of how his father made the family fortune. He enters the cut-throat world of big corporate giants and finds that he can trust no one-not even people he thought he knew best. But stay he must and Sam finds himself becoming a modern-day cowboy as he protects his family and their fortune.

Who is trying to ruin the company? Who has the most to lose and the most to gain? Will Sam be able to save Simplicity or will he die trying? What message is his father trying to tell him from the grave?

In the vein of Louis L'amour with the wit of Mark Twain, Broken R reads like a modern day western with a hero you'll cheer for! This novel contains memorable characters and an intricate plot that will keep you guessing until the final chapter.

William Robinson is a retired carpenter and fulltime writer. A former Marine, he's traveled extensively and loves the lure of the old west. He and his wife, Brenda live in Arkansas near their children and grandchildren. Robinson is currently writing his second novel, a sequel to the Broken R. This is his first book.

    I found it really suspenseful, it is one of those books that once you start reading it is hard to put down cause it captures you in the story and you want to see what is going to happen next. I reccommend this book to all who love a mystery with a lot of twists and turns. Very good read.
