Richard Prosch's writing is clever and sharp, like Whit himself, and his quirky supporting characters are finely drawn.
Also included: a preview of the soon-to-be-released novella, "Holt County Law," in which we meet Whit's boss, Sheriff Barney Keane, and other salty residents of O'Neill City, Nebraska. "Branham's Due" is the beginning of what promises to be a great series, and I'm already looking forward to "Holt County Law."
P.S. Do fail to check out Mr. Prosch's other works, Devils Nest and Meadows Ford Blues.
Here, Deputy Whit Branham goes after a killer and horse thief, Johann Kramer. He knows where Kramer is hiding and goes with his Stevens 10-gauge to get him.
From that simple premise, Richard spins a tale with a twist here and there, a bit of humor, and a satisfying story.
The short story has a chunk form the forthcoming Branham novella, HOLT COUNTY, due in December.
Looking forward to that one.
In a genre that has been "rode hard and put up wet" his writing is crisp, exciting and most importantly intelligent.
Prosch's fresh approach invites a new generation to enjoy classic tales of the Old West side-by-side with those who were raised on Zane Grey and Louis L'Amore.
And for this we gratefully say "Thank you, Mr. Prosch!"
A sample chapter of the latter is included here, making the 99-cent price a real bang-for-your-buck bargain.
Prosch's 1880s Nebraska setting is spot-on, his characters are colorful and memorable, and while there are doses of quirky humor there also remains at all times an overriding sense of ready-to-erupt danger.
You don't want to miss this one and you for sure won't want to miss the forthcoming novella.
