Sinopsis:

Lucinda Barkley, a hostage of prison escapees, is rescued by part-time lawman Marc Charvein. Wounded in the resulting shootout, she feels due some compensation for her ordeal. So she secretly partners with gambler Sam Stonehouse to dig up a hundred pounds of stolen gold, half of it in the form of a gold cross. Ezra Pitney, the rightful owner, wrongly assumes it was taken by Marc Charvein, the man he hired to find it ― and from there the chase is on.

From Booklist:

Champlin understands horses, guns, and the treacherous desert as well as anyone, but he never writes a traditional western. He writes adventure stories full of action and plot twists. Cross of Gold features a hard-luck, part-time lawman, Marc Charvein, who takes a job from a mine owner, Ezra Pitney, to find stolen gold. He finds it in a Nevada ghost town under a dynamited church, drives off the bad guys with the help of an old prospector, and rescues a young woman, Lucy Barkley. Thinking all is under control, Charvein draws his hard-won pay and strikes out for Arizona, where he hopes to rest through a warm winter. Meanwhile, Lucy enlists the help of an unscrupulous gambler and wrests the gold from the church. The two barely escape ahead of Pitney, who, thinking he’s been doublecrossed, angrily dispatches a gunman after Charvein. All parties converge near Yuma in a hair-raising climax on a California-bound train right out of a 1950s B western. Everything turns on coincidence, but somehow Champlin pulls it off, leaving the reader wanting more. --John Mort
