Fears and Hopes of a Decent Man

Helen Hogan’s “Ridgecrest Rescue,” a remarkable novel, will capture readers’ hearts and minds.


Beginning with breakneck pace, the story focuses on Rod Mannering who struggles to overcome some devastating life events.  Before concluding, he embarks on his most incredible life mission, rescuing his daughter, Belinda. 

This fast-paced novel will inspire and challenge readers as they watch a man who maintains control in the face of overwhelming situations. A good man, Rod Mannering protects a young horse from abuse. When at the next show he finds the body of his good friend in a stall that pits him against a killer. At the same time, he deals with threats of financial damages and real estate fraud. Rod tries not to admit to himself his attraction to the woman rider from Texas, Taylor Blair.

On top of these challenging situations, the Colorado Highway Patrol find his daughter’s car abandoned like vehicles of several women killed in the area in the last few years. From here, the trail gets even more intense as Rod makes it his quest to rescue his beloved Belinda.

Helen Hogan creates an intense tale of survival and action that pulls readers to turn each page faster than the last.  She brings two sympathetic characters, a man determined to recover from physical and emotional damage and a woman feeling lost fighting to bring meaning back into her life. The backdrop of Arabian horse shows with their competition, exciting action, and glamor heightens the hint of romance. The two horse characters give readers the feel of strength and power and appreciation for exotic beauty:  Shazia, Rod’s chestnut mare who patiently helped on his pathway to recovery, and Raz, powerful grey stallion who gives Taylor confidence alone in a new region.  Even the minor characters force the reader to recognize folks trying to find hope for desperate lives.  The quick action still leaves room for kindness as a rival competitor comes in support when Rod trips over a wire and crashes down the mountainside to catch himself on a narrow ledge in pending storm.
