There is a movie here, with great characters and good action. Is anyone paying attention? An absolute page turner, with an old fashioned hero, a brave mother and retribution. Have fun.

Format: Hardcover
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 years ago.

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.

Bad drugs, bad guys, good read March 18 2004
By John Bowes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There is a movie here, with great characters and good action. Is anyone paying attention? An absolute page turner, with an old fashioned hero, a brave mother and retribution. Have fun.
the bad guy rides the White Horse July 8 2013
By jeffw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The title of this taut thriller, Six White Horses, refers to synthetic heroin, known on the steet as H, Horse, and White Horse. This is the product that our protagonist, Palmer, is blackmailed into ferrying over the U.S. border for Staff Sergeant Harry Wilde, who knows he can railroad Palmer to jail on false drug charges if Palmer doesn't play ball with him. Like all Dold's novels, the characters here are sharply drawn and believable and the plot arranged to keep the reader interested and turning pages. This is a novel that showcases human desperation and shows how someone with courage and hope can defeat it.
