Synopsis: Historical Fiction: Novelized history of lawless L.A. gangs of 1853 and the Rangers who battled them. L.A. beckoned Horace Bell with love and police work and he could study for the Bar. Violence brought his rapid retribution. For Paulette Bovierre, with a lost love in France, Horace Bell had a promising future. She was pure strength in adversity. L.A. offered Don Tomas Sanchez political power as he fought to keep the status quo. The Americans had already grabbed too many Mexican ranches. For Dona Jacinto Talamantes, her love at first sight starts a triangle between Horace and Paulette. Love lived forever. In Roy Bean's heart, L.A. was a place to have fun "whorin'" and to be a ranger. Yes, sin permeated everywhere. Humor existed for their survival. Juan Flores' must first kill the Chinese, then all the Americans. His gang would revolt against the new order. Now all must face the largest struggle ever seen in Los Angeles. Character counted when one ranger challenged 100 miscreants.

From the Publisher: The author goes into a time not covered by book or film. 1853-was eight years prior the the American Civil War (1861 to 1865) which afterward started the Western Era. The book and movie "Zorro" was a light-hearted period piece around 1835 when the Mexican Government was present. Remember Los Angeles was more violent than anywhere in America. They averaged a murder a day just downtown with just a 1,600 population. The author captures the very colorful pueblo and gives you a REAL ride back in time. If you are interested in hidden Los Angeles History you will never forget this book.
