This was my first Max McCoy read but it definitely will not be my last.
I didn't enjoy this book at all. I thought when Anise arrived on the scene it might make a difference. It didn't, although she seemed like a reasonable character until she revealed her unbelievable reason for leading her Uncle and Jake astray.
I'm glad this is the last of the three Jake Gamble stories; I'd rather mow the grass even when it's 100 degrees F.
Unfortunately, I'm have two more of McCoy's books on my bookshelf: one about the Dalton gang and the other about Wild Bill Hickok. I gave up reading about the famous or infamous characters in Western stories by the 1950's. My own fault, I didn't look at the reviews or brief descriptions on Amazon. So I'll read them, probably skip a lot of filler, and remove Max McCoy from my list of acceptable authors. Of course, I ignored his Indiana Jones books without hesitation; he's probably worse than his Western characters. I think McCoy is in good company with Richard S. Wheeler after he turned to writing historically!
This was a good book, overall, but not as good as I was expecting. The first half of the book has a lot of little sub-plots going on, but the main plot doesn't materialize until half-way through the book. It also moved along fairly slowly until later in the book, and there wasn't as much action as I'd have liked. Also, even the main plot later in the book seemed a little bit of a letdown, and somewhat anti-climactic. The incredible pacing of the Indiana Jones book just wasn't there.
Still, I'm curious to check out more of McCoy's work, and if you're a fan of Westerns this one certainly isn't bad.

I'm not ordinarily a reader of Westerns, but I loved Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses, and Henry Strozier is my favorite narrator, so I gave Damnation Road a try. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Peggy
