Langford "Ford" Morgan, ex-soldier, ex-CIA, ex-go-between in the drug wars from Southeast Asia to Colombia, emerges from a self-imposed exile in the mountains of Costa Rica to rescue a former flame whose husband, Wall Street baron Ralph Baliol (of the Baliol dynasty), is recovering from an assassination attempt, allegedly at the hands of his own son. Baliol, who has made a career of making enemies - federal regulators among them - seems oddly uninterested in uncovering the plot against him. At the center, however, lies Baliol's beautiful wife Rachel - formerly Ford's beautiful wife Rachel - whose wish to exonerate her only son will make a mockery of "equal justice for all." The Cadillac Cowboy follows Ford Morgan from Costa Rica to the rarified coastal estates of Montecito, then on to the endangered redwood forests of Northern California, where he confronts a desperate big-money scheme. Along the way, Ford has the chance to settle some old scores and more importantly, the opportunity to recover the one treasure he never expected to lose.
