Publisher's Summary

It was the only water for miles in a vast, sun-blasted desert where water meant survival. So Logan Cates naturally headed for Papago Wells. But he wasn't the only one. Fleeing the fierce Churupati and his Apache warriors, other travelers had come there, too. And when the Apaches found them, they began a siege as relentless and unforgiving as the barren land - and just as inescapable.
The last thing Cates wanted was to be responsible for the lives of 13 desperate strangers and a shipment of gold. But he knew that if they were to survive, he was their last chance. He also knew that some in the party were willing to die - or kill - to get their hands on the money. If he couldn't get them to work together, it wouldn't be the desert or even the Apaches that would do them in - it would be the greed of the very people he was trying to save.

Oh Boy

Simplistic, repetitive, misogynistic and very hostile toward the Apache; defining them solely as killers. Aside from those details it's a decent adventure story and the author does a good job of keeping the narrative moving. If you want a listenable book that will keep you engaged while you do something else and you don't mind cultural insensitivity, racial and gender stereotyping, if not outright animus; this one is a decent choice.
