Land of Wolves finds Joseph Foster with Molly as they settle into a new-found life in the hills of Tennessee. But Abraham Lincoln’s former bodyguard, the man who saved the President’s life, cannot escape the Consortium as they come roaring back, killing his mother, abducting his daughter—all to coerce his Congressional testimony on their behalf.
Instead, Joseph and Molly strike the Consortium in their own safe haven of New York City. In a Bonnie and Clyde-like twist, they rob from the Consortium to draw out their leader—General Dorsey. But the hidden plan reveals more than they counted on, exposing the true intention to steal the Black Hills and the gold underneath from the Lakota Sioux. Land of Wolves traverses the American landscape, where only a full reconciliation with Joseph’s native heritage and a cast of characters ripped from history—including Lincoln—can bring true peace and stop General Dorsey and the evil Industrial Consortium.

Praise For Land of Wolves: The Return of Lincoln's Bodyguard…
“A wonderfully imagined world of 'what might have been, if only if.’ The chemistry between the characters sparkles, the treachery comes from all directions, and the story moves with a wry, appealing voice. It’s one delicious tale." — Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The 14th Colony
"...all should applaud Turner’s sympathetic focus on the plight of native peoples." — Publishers Weekly
"The novel's alternate version of the U.S. circa 1875 is clever and plausibly designed, its characters are engaging and, in some cases, entertainingly over-the-top, and the story is almost cinematic in its construction and execution. Terrific fun and perfect reading for fans of alternate-history adventures." — Booklist
“Land of Wolves is an inherently fascinating, compelling, and fully entertaining read from cover to cover.” — Midwest Book Review
“Wow, what an interesting twist on historical events! This story is a page-turner, so expect to lose track of time while reading!” — InD'Tale Magazine
