"A good thriller"
In California, USMC Corporal Palmer waits for his
girlfriend Suzanne to arrive at the pier when instead
Marine Sergeant Harry Wilde confronts him with a choice.
Harry demands Palmer serves as a mule trafficking in drug
sales or face jail time for possession. Following being
framed of a drug charge of possession of snort, with the
help of Suzanne, Palmer flees to Mexico because he knows he
cannot win against Wilde.
Several years later, Palmer feels guilty that he abandoned
Suzanne, who has given birth to his son whom he has never
met. Palmer also realizes that he still loves Suzanne.
However, he as a new problem or perhaps a better way to
look at it is the return of an old problem. Ex- marine
Harry Wilde is in Mexico seeking a new messenger to work
his expanded trafficking that now also includes weapons.
He sees Palmer as the perfect dupe, but the dishonorably
discharged corporal is not the same kid railroaded seven
SIX WHITE HORSES is a strong thriller gripping the reader
in its suspense and never frees anyone until the novel is
finished. The story line is loaded with entertaining
action, but the key antagonists seem genuine especially the
beleaguered Palmer. Some readers will feel Wilde is over
the edge with no redeeming qualities, but he serves as the
catalyst to all that happens to the other prime cast.
Gaylord Dold furbishes a strong take no prisoner thriller
that is 200 proof octane.
