Arkansas – WEBWIRE

When Bobby Joe witnesses a murder, his life takes an unexpected turn.


Bobby Joe is isolated in an arid desert setting while looking for the fabled treasure del Diablo. When his last mule dies–he has no choice but to undertake the arduous journey to water and safety.


Bobby Joe makes the life-changing choice to assume the identity of a dead man after being saved by the man’s horse and discovering a letter from an uncle to the slain man. Taking control of someone’s life is never simple. However, Bobby Joe’s predicament is much more dangerous as he escapes assassination attempts, a hostile takeover, an Arizona Ranger on a mission for answers, and the widow of the deceased man who knows Bobby Joe isn’t who he claims to be.


He enlists the assistance of a ranch hand while taking over as the new owner of the Slash M, not giving up on his ambition of retrieving the treasure del Diablo. Will the treasure be discovered? Or will the lying surface first?


The book is a riveting story that thrusts readers into the life of an ordinary person and his extraordinary exploits set against the backdrop of the American Frontier.

“John T. Wayne’s writing makes it as if you were riding along with the cowboys in the novel. I find it very refreshing and hope he has many more western novels to come. I could see this making a great movie. Thanks, John! Keep them coming.” —Amazon customer.
