The year is 1807 and Elise Lourois, a spy for the president, is on an unauthorized mission to find her younger brother who is also a spy, and to possibly stop a war between Spain and the United States. She hires a reluctant Santiago Quinn, the White Apache, to take her to Santa Fe. Before she can leave St. Louis she is almost killed by a couple of assassins but is saved by Quinn. She soon returns the favor when Quinn is in a fight to the death with another killer. She jams a pistol in the man's back and blows a hole in him. On the trail across the plains, as the adventures become more exciting and dangerous (a tornado, a visit to an Osage village where Santiago is almost killed) the sexual tension between Elise and her renegade builds to a white-hot pitch. These two characters, cautious, cynical and worldly, are a wonderful pairing. And the story abounds with intrigue and quirky characters like Santiago's partner, Spy Buck, a Muskogee Indian who speaks with a flawless British accent. Henke delivers an exciting read with passionate, interesting lovers.
