There can only be one winner…

Jeff Alroyd, a restless mining engineer, and the son of a renowned poker player, rides into Double Peak Valley seeking shelter for the night.

He stumbles upon the hospitality of Morton Kemp, an old cattle farmer, and his daughter Babs, who are living on a once-thriving, but now parched and dying ranch.

He soon finds himself caught up in the flood of sabotage, threats, kidnap and even murder, as adjoining landowner “Poker” Barrow plays dirty.

Alroyd quickly determines to help Babs and her father reclaim their vital water supply, to rescue the farm and win Babs’ heart into the bargain.

But can an ‘Act of God’ be undone?

And will Alroyd beat Barrow at his own game?

The stakes are higher than ever!

Is it all worth the gamble?

Deluge! is the story of one man’s life-and-death struggle. A dramatic tale of justice that will grip readers from the first page until the final, unexpected conclusion.
