An &“intense, deeply haunting&” saga about love, money, and murder, set amid Nevada&’s mining and gambling booms (Publishers Weekly). In the aftermath of World War I, three veterans—Mike, Jim, and Buck—meet a seductive woman named Ruby. Quick Silver follows all four over a span of decades, from Virginia City to Las Vegas, as their lives intertwine and intersect. It is a tale of marriage and infidelity, an orphaned boy and a forbidden passion, fortunes made in silver mining and the early days of casinos overrun by organized crime. This absorbing tale of the American Southwest blends fictional characters with real-life figures, such as Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky, in a dramatic epic. &“Turbulent emotions and confrontations fill this spellbinding tale that pits highly principled characters against wanton, amoral ones. To maintain the suspense, Howard deftly shifts from past to present. He is a superlative storyteller.&” —Publishers Weekly &“Skillful and well-researched . . . An entertaining and nicely turned plot.&” —Kirkus Reviews
