More About the Author

Edward A. Grainger is the pen name of David Cranmer, who was born and raised in New York, though his heart has been in the Old West since his father introduced him to Gunsmoke at a young age. He is author and creator of the Amazon best-selling Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles series, as well as The Drifter Detective and The Lawyer series, and he's a charter member of the Western Fictioneers.

He is also editor and publisher of BEAT to a PULP webzine and books, and as a freelance writer, his reviews have appeared on the Macmillan sites Criminal Element and Tor.com. But by far his favorite role is that of father.

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.

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.

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.

U.S. Marshal Cash Laramie is a man of two worlds. Born of white heritage and raised by the Arapaho, he lives these days with one foot in the white man’s world and a foot--- maybe even his soul--- in the world of the Arapaho. Along the way he dispenses justice as he sees fit earning the moniker of being the “Outlaw Marshall.”

After a forward by Alec Cizak, that origin of Cash Laramie is detailed in the novella “Origin of White Deer” with Chuck Tyrell. Orphaned at the battle of Fall Creek, he was raised by the Arapaho. He came of age at twelve earning the name “White Deer,” but it would be until the following year when everything changed. It was time for him to return to the white man’s world. As it did at the battle of Fall Creek all those years ago his entire world is about to change in a tremendous way.

Banker Jacob Whitney isn’t happy about his daughter and her behavior in “Maggie’s Promise.” Cash Laramie has found her and is pretty disgusted by the banker in so many ways.

Marshal Gideon Miles and his prisoner Jarvis Kincaid are headed towards Gavelin, Wyoming in “Miles In Between.” It is about the final five miles of the trip and then the Marshal can finally turn over this man accused of murdering a local woman to the authorities. Jarvis Kincaid claims he didn’t kill anyone and has a pretty good idea who did it. His argument makes some sense to the Marshal who begins to consider what he is being asked to do. What if Jarvis did not kill the town’s most prominent resident, Mrs. Peterson? Miles could be taking the man to a hanging for a crime he did not commit.

Cash Laramie is back in the next western tale “Cash Laramie and the Painted Ladies.” Cash has stormed into the bordello as the story begins to talk to Vanessa Lynn.

I enjoyed everything about these stories, the period dialogue ( I haven't lit a "lucifer" in a very long time), the characters, the story lines, & only a couple of typos which bug the hell out of me. Not a 5 star because frankly I'm a snob & only authors such as Lee Child, James Lee Burke & others of their class get the occasional 5 star out of me. I'd buy a novel length book by Mr. Grainger if the price were right (fixed income & all of that.)

I have been reading Westerns for fifty years, Cash Laramie is a Classic. Cash volume one was my favorite and this continues the greatness. Disclaimer: I do not know the author and I have no financial concerns with this book or series.

"Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles Vol. II is the second in a Old West series by author Edward A. Grainger. This Kindle e-book was a 344 Kb download (approx 84 pages) and was priced at $0.99.

As with the first volume, this book contains seven short stories and is set in Wyoming during the mid-late 1800s.

The tales follow the adventures of Federal Marshals Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles as they mete out justice in the generally lawless territory of the newly developing American frontier. When together they express a cajoling and humorous banter, but when the chips are down, their passions, prejudices and the experiences of a tough upbringing often come into play.

The stories vary in scope. The first deals with Cash's upbringing by the Arapaho Indians...this tale takes up almost half of the book but it is intriguing and filled with useful information that gives the readers an understanding of how Cash thinks and reacts to the various situations he faces as a Federal Marshal.
Most of other stories involve the typical old West yarns of the tracking and catching of outlaws. But there are a couple tales that are not your usual rousing Western cowboy fare, as these encompass some touching and sensitive issues...a most unexpected but yet a pleasantly rewarding experience.

Favorite story... 'Reflections in a Glass of Maryland Rye'.

Conclusion:
More tales of the Old West featuring Federal Marshals Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles. All tales are short and well written... most are graphically violent but a couple had a reflective beauty that was totally unexpected.

Overall story telling that has a quality that will keep you eagerly reading through to the end.

5 Stars
