Book Description

Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles is a short story collection of eight rousing, noir Western tales with a hardboiled edge.

In 1880s Wyoming Territory, two Deputy U.S. Marshals find themselves on the outside of societal norms. Cash Laramie, raised by the Arapahos, is known as The Outlaw Marshal for his unorthodox conduct toward criminals and his cavalier approach to life. Gideon Miles, one of the first African Americans in the marshal service, is honorable, fearless, and unrivaled in his skills with guns, knives, and tracking.

These independent, resourceful lawmen develop a bond, establishing a formidable defense in a wayward land where good and wicked is often hard to distinguish and life is as cheap as a two-bit game of poker.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Buy One Book Today, Make It This One.... June 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With ADVENTURES OF CASH LARAMIE AND GIDEON MILES, Edward A. Grainger has given fans of traditional Westerns something new and exciting to sink their choppers into. Not a fan of Westerns? Been a while since you've tucked into one? Prefer crime stories? No worries, these stories are as much crime, action, and adventure tale as they are Western. But all that genre affiliation aside, these are damn fine stories.

It would be an easy thing to go on and on about the tightly crafted plots, the characters so well rendered they feel as if they're speaking to you and pulling you into their adventures with them, the satisfying feeling of finishing one of these stories--and then finding there's another one to go, the disappointment at coming to the end of the book (though I've been told there are more such adventures to come)....

But what really should be said is that Edward A. Grainger (aka David Cranmer) is one of the most important writers of the new pulp movement, and these stories are very much worth your time. And for a buck? Egads, don't tell me you're still reading this review! Click "Buy Now," sink spur, and hang on....

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing collection at any price! June 10, 2011
By CFH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I confess, until I read Grainger's Cash and Miles stories, I always thought of Westerns as dusty, dated affairs. But Grainger proved me wrong. His blend of Westerns and crime fiction is pitch-perfect, bringing out the best in both genres. His take on the prejudices of his characters' time is both modern and nuanced, commenting beautifully on both their peers' biases as well as those our culture still carries today. And lordy, are these stories thrilling.

This collection is a steal at any price, and what Grainger's charging here, you'll feel like you just got away with something buying it. Just hope they don't send ol' Laramie after you; he don't take kindly to thievin'...

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles Of Cash Before I Sleep July 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you took a razor blade and ran it down a wet canvas half dripping with black ink, then smeared it into the white area, you'd get a good replica of the characters Edward Grainger draws out in Cash & Miles. The backdrop is late 1800's. Times are harsh. A shot of whiskey doesn't go far. Cash is the harbinger of the law, but he bears much more than this, he bears a conscience that is often at disagreement with the law. It's this inner battle that carries the reader eagerly through the stories and wanting more. Miles holds my favorite shoot out scene in "Miles To Go." He's full of spunk, grit and is a sort of cornerstone to the series. There's a bit of everything for everyone in the book: gunfights, love, humor, horror, friendship and grit. One of my favorite reads for this year. I highly recommend, especially for those who are fans of Stephen King's Dark Tower books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Second Serving of Cold Justice! October 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Edward Grainger rides again. Volume II starts out with the 'Origin Story' of Cash Laramie--how he got his name, his values, and that obsidian arrowhead he wears around his neck. 'The Origin of White Deer' is the longest piece in the collection, and nicely bookends with 'Reflections in a Glass of Maryland Rye.' The latter depicts a much older, remorseful Cash meditating on his actions and the finalties of frontier justice.

In between there's a lot of action, both of the gun-blazing type and the darker, 'noir' style reminescent of The Unforgiven. The intrepid Gideon Miles also makes an appearance.

Personally, the Adventures of Cash Laramie stories remind me of old radio serials like Have Gun, Will Travel and Gunsmoke, though un-sanitized and rendered in shades of gray.

Definitely worth your silver dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not biased-I love this writer October 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As I read through all the five star reviews, I am pleased to be among a host of readers & writers that know and love these stories.
I start reading about Cash & Miles and I just can't put it down. I read until my eyes hurt. In the case of Vol.II, I just didn't stop until I was finished. Even then, I wanted more. I feel more connected to these characters with every story.
I can hear Cash light a lucifer on his boot. I can feel the look in those cold blue eyes . I am right there in Cheyenne watching with the rest of the townfolk, from the sidelines, holding my breath, as he doles out his own personal brand of justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles February 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good book of western stories. The two main characters remain constant, while each chapter seems to be another short story. This would be a great book for someone who only has a few minutes at a time to read. These stories are rustic and are more than likely to be very close to how things were back in this period of American history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Six Shot January 11, 2014
By Rickles
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a series of old west short stories. Each short story is one of the adventures of US Marshals Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles. Each story stands alone and deals with moral issue. The characters are nicely developed and the plots interesting. The book is a very quick read (I read it in an afternoon). I found the stories interesting and I enjoyed them.
