The Outlaw and the Lady

(1994)
A novel by

 
 
When ex-Confederate guerrilla Tod Larraby was tricked into shooting a crooked gambler in a Colorado mining town, a scheming town marshal set a dubious price for his freedom. Lord Buckhampton, a bull-headed British capitalist with investments in the state, could use Larraby to guide him to his delinquent son who'd vanished into the wildest part of the Rockies. The n'er-do-well had been sent to America to make good. Instead he'd "liberated" a half-breed whore from a Leadville bordello and taken to the owlhoot trail. Against Larraby's advice, Buckhampton insisted they take along his second wife, Julia. Then the abused and unhappy beauty fell for Larraby and shared his hotel bed, adding further complications to a quest that already looked like ending in disaster.
"Locating universal emotions in his characters is what makes O'Keefe's West so compelling.... He doesn't treat the West as some static, dusty entity, but engages with the emotional and moral issues the way real people would have." -- Cullen Gallagher, Pulp Serenade
