Ty, on the other hand, is a character who is going to capture your attention, when you get to see him the way the residents of Wind River get to see him, which appears to be quite different from the person that he is.

Money Land is the sequel to Blood Land that was previously titled Dark Prairies. Guthrie referred to the book as his tour de force, and any reader can clearly see that Guthrie poured his heart, soul, and sweat into the book. It is an exceedingly ambitious novel, which combined successfully a murder mystery with a tragedy. In Money Land, R.S Guthrie has addressed various issues such as family estrangement, alcoholism, racism, big money, unconstrained greed and government corruption.

The years that Bob Mac has served in the Denver Force have unquestionably left a mark in Bob Mac’s life. When two exceedingly young drug dealers, are killed in the town’s local park, the authorities rule that the two were killed by a bear.
