  • 5.0 out of 5 starsMurder, Mayhem and Beautiful Prose
    ByJust Say Maybeon January 3, 2015

    Chasm Creek is a mining town, and it seems everyone is convinced that there is gold in the hills just waiting to be discovered...or stolen. On every page of the novel, the reader can smell, hear, see and feel the west as it must have been in the 1800's territory of Arizona. Patricia Grady Cox is master of prose that excites the senses. I can still smell the sage after a desert rain and hear the horses hoofs stomp the ground. When two strangers ride onto the homestead of an abandoned wife and her four young children, lives change. Each character brings secrets, hopes and fears to the story. The reader gets a glimpse of the white man's disdain for Indians that is shocking in terms of today's sensibilities. One of the characters, Ruben, a Navajo and a devout Catholic, has spent a lifetime trying to deny his heritage. But the white men won't let him. His partner, Morgan, a rugged Civil War hero, whose life turned to tragedy after the war, is on the run, wanted for murder with a bounty on his head. Months have passed since her husband left and Esther wonders if he will return. She's worn down by the burden of trying to survive and protect her four children. She slowly begins to depend on the strangers, a decision that brings death and mayhem to her doorstep. Chasm Creek is a book to be savored and not read in haste. Take time to feel the wind in your face and see the moonlight on the cactus. You won't be disappointed. I am so excited to discover this wonderful new author. I can't wait for her next book.
  • The ending is a shocker...

    Chasm Creek is a well crafted novel that takes place in a small mining town in post civil-war Arizona. Though it started off a little slow for me, it wasn't long before I was pulled in by the complexity of the characters and the author's vivid portrayal of the Arizona setting. The main male character, Morgan is a man haunted by a grim past. His partner, Ruben, is an Indian who was taken from his family as a child, and raised as a Catholic with a hispanic family. Esther is a woman whose husband has abandoned her and she's left with four children to raise by herself. She decides to lease her land to Morgan and Ruben and move to town. For me, this is where the novel takes off. Chasm Creek offers enough twists and turns to keep a reader intrigued and the ending is a real shocker. Even if you aren't a fan of western fiction, take a look at Chasm Creek. It's a great book

    Just finished reading Chasm Creek. The book was a great read with lots of engaging characters. The setting of the old west was very interesting to me having grown up in a city atmosphere..The book was interesting and kept me wanting more as I read. I could have kept reading but unfortunately the book ended. I really hope a sequel is written ..Chasm Creek is a great book. Kept my attention from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend this book.
  • A very good read.

    A fascinating journey into the19th century southwest - gritty, with well drawn characters and illustrations of the powerful forces that shaped that portion of the country. Love and loss as portrayed by Grady-Cox are as poignant today as a century and a half ago. I particularly enjoyed becoming immersed in the way life was lived at that time in that place. Recommended reading.
  • I loved this book! ByLiz Marshallon December 7, 2014

This isn't just a western, this is a novel about love, and loss, and betrayal, and about hope and redemption and worlds beyond the one we can see. The setting was so clear and real, sometimes I thought I was seeing it on horseback. Every character had a story that unfolded gradually, and I cared enough about them to keep turning the pages. The ending was unexpected, but satisfying. A definite must read, even if you think you don't like westerns.

From the Author

CHASM CREEK  - A Novel of the West is the second edition of Chasm Creek. Originally published by a small press, that contract expired on October 1, 2017. I decided to republish through my company, IRW Publishing. Changes include a completely revised and redesigned cover and interior formatting, and some copy corrections and minor editing. The story and the characters have not changed.
