Set in the harsh desert world of Arizona and New Mexico Territories in the 1870s, Written in Blood follows young Jim Doolen as he searches for his father. As he travels through the scorched landscape, Jim crosses paths with a mystical Apache warrior, a Mexican revolutionary and a mysterious drifter. With each encounter he learns a story and takes one more step back toward a dark, violent past. Finally, in a ruined Mexican hacienda, Jim realizes that discovering his past has also opened the way to his future.
"Told in a terse, present-tense narrative, Jim's adventures will thrill all fans of traditional pulp-style oaters." (Booklist)
Written in Blood is the first book in The Desert Legends Trilogy. It is followed by Ghost Moon and Victorio's War.
