Excerpt from Chapter 14 – “Designs on the Triple R Ranch”:

CARL BRINDLE AND SAM WELTON eased into the overstuffed
chairs at Cyrus Pender’s invitation. Lighting up a thick
Cuban cigar, Cyrus opened the meeting to discuss what Lady
Caroline’s Morely’s inheritance of the Triple R ranch meant to
the claims by the families of Don Miguel Garza and the Weltons.

“Gents, it looks like Ken Battle has pretty much removed
himself from Triple R operations, an important first step for us.
The English gal is spending a lot of time in Tucson so Barney
Little is on top of things on a day-to-day basis. He’s been building
ponds and drilling a couple of new wells. He’s also on standby
awaiting instructions from us.”
