Miles to Little Ridge (Cash Laramie & Gideon Miles Series Book 3) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Whether or not Gandy was ever a bank robber is not an issue for Miles. He has been told to bring him back and that is what he will do. The Sheriff is going to be useless with the arrest of Gandy and that might be just as well as considering his attitude about U.S. Marshals and African American ones in particular. He is also most likely going to be worthless regarding other potentially dangerous events involving Miles in Little Ridge.
Like others in this series Miles To Little Ridge is another solidly good western. Interesting characters, plenty of twists, and turns along with lots of action makes the series as well as this one good.

Now, he has turned the reins over to Heath Lowrance. I adore Heath's work, both his short stories and longer novel, The Bastard Hand. However, you certainly would not peg him as the next writer of westerns.
However, the collaboration was an unqualified success. Miles jumps off the page here. He's a mix of nobility, anger, an understandable chip on his shoulder and a savvy and capable lawman and fighter. Each of those traits makes its way to the reader through the interactions with the various characters that populate Little Ridge.
A bigoted sheriff, framed outlaws, foolish criminals with a relationship that hides its true nature. All these meet and confront Miles, allowing his character to shine through.
In the end, Miles if first and foremost the officer behind the badge. Capable and duty bound. Not without sympathy, but not willing to shed responsibility, or shy away from conflict. He is a US Marshall, and don't make the mistake of forgetting that.
a debut novel,
an eBook short story anthology,
launch of a zombie series,
launch of a western series,
and also a definitive guide to crime / noire as found on his blog;
we've got this, with good reason the first of presumably many Gideon Miles forays from guest authors.
The dialogue alone here is strong enough to immediately bring to mind Elmore Leonard, another Michigan author who has one footed firmly planted in Crime fiction and another in Western... but Elmore been writing for decades now and I'm not sure he's penned a Zombie novel yet.... maybe it's coming?
