I really liked this book Great characters and action, excellent pacing and a very satisfying ending Broomall plays with all the emotions, and every time the action looks like it is going to flag, some other complication surfaces You are quite often on the edge of your seat with this title It s hard to believe that new blood can be infused in the Western genre, but this book fits the bill.
Best for LastThis was the best book of the trilogy I look forward to enjoying of the author s westerns, a dying genre save for romance novels.

Think of the African QueenThis was a well paced story that pulls you into it It made me think of the African Queen in that the two main characters were as different as night and day Not a lot of fluff to the story just a hard riding tale Here the bad men are not Indians, but white men with few scruples If you like a good Western then I highly recommend this one.
A fast read, good characters, good descriptions, not predictable for the most part I found it a little too unbelievable Too many situations to list that just wouldn t have been possible If someone gave me the book I d read it but wouldn t recommend it.
Very Good BookThe book was so good I didn t want to stop reading it The suspense of what could possibly happen next kept you reading and not wanting to stop.
