Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story is titled for the secondary character. It is a little unusual for Louis L'Amour to give the title to someone other than the main character, but it works really well in this book. The real character is a young boy who was born into a terrible situation. Things looked hopeless for him when he was abandoned by his cold and heartless mother. Good fortune smiled upon him when he found his new care taker to be a gambling man with savvy and character. Will Reilly raised him right and taught him the secrets he would need to be a successful man. After a terrible killing, Val finds himself wanting revenge. Slowly and surely it will come in it's own time. When it does, it finds that a hopeless boy has grown into a good man who is well capable of settling all of the issues at hand. Facing a cold hearted mother after all those years would be enough to upset anyone, but you'll have to read the book to find out how he handles it.

I'm a big fan of the late Louis L'Amour. INMO one of America's great authors and the only author to be awarded the Congressional medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Reagan. I've bought and read 24 of his westerns, 3 short story collections, his sci fi book Haunted Mesa, Walking Drum, The Last of the Breed, The Lonesome Gods and his first book of poems. Almost all 5 stars. An incredibly talented author.

Reilly's Luck is about a 4 year old boy named Val Darrant growing up and becoming a respectable man. We see his evil, manipulating, murderous mother named Myra who does everything including prostitution and multiple murders in order to advance herself in society and make lots of money. That all she cares about and had no use for he husband, son or boy friend. She treats everyone like dirt. She tells Van her boyfriend she doesn't want her 4 year old son and to get rid of it. Its 40 below zero out and she orders Van to get rid of her son Val. Van has pity on the kid and likes Val and does not leave him to die in the cold but takes Val to the only one ( Will Reilly) he can think of that might take care of Val.

Will Reilly is a professional gambler with good upbringing, manners, intelligence and is good with a gun. He makes some good investments. Val and Will Reilly go to Europe where Reilly meets a beautiful woman and falls in love but she is hounded by a low life, gambling Prince Pavel. The Price tries to bull whip Will Reilly but Reilly gets the whip and slashes and scars the prince's face with his own whip. The Prince plans vengeance and hires men to kill Reilly. Myra the evil mother plots to kill her ex boyfriend Van so there will be one less person that knows her sorted past.

Reilly's Luck is one of L'Amour's longest books of the period, and is the best. Read it. You will enjoy the story of Val Darrant as you watch him grow up throughout the book. Will Reilly is also one of my favorite L'Amour characters, and one of the most complex.

This novel is almost two novels in one. The story line differs from L'Amour's frequent tales of the quiet but slick gun toting hombres who save the ranch and gets the girl. This one has much more intrigue and better character development.

Another great story by Louis L'Amour. I like the other western writers but he is my favorite. I live near Tombstone and Tucson Arizona in Hereford. This is near the Mustang and Huachuca mountains. He has described this area in some of his stories and when I first arrived I felt that I had been here before. This is one of the great thing about his writings. The other is that he spins a great tale. I am sure that you will enjoy this book.

I have been reading Louis L'Amour's westerns since 1990, and I really enjoy them, this one like the majority of his books are easy reading without stress. This one has clear cut good and honorable characters, bad ones, and in between.
I am happy they are now in Kindle format because they are easier on my tired eyes. I own quite a few of his titles in paperback, but I find them hard to read because of the small print. That is why I am repurchasing them anew even if it goes a bit against my grain.
Go ahead, give this author a try, it is a nice escape.

LL was in a class of his own. I have read every novel he wrote. In fact, I have numerous dog eared paperbacks that I paid a quarter for. I do have a few hardback, but they are probably older than most readers. Ha! Ha! If you get hooked on his books be prepared to pay a year's worth of spending money. As I mention earlier, "There are no bad Louis L'Amour's novels.....ER

This has been one of my favorite books for more years than I like to think of. It is simply one of , if not the very best, westerns ever written. It is a book that will stay with you once you have read it, and will be every bit of exciting the hundredth time you read it as it was on the first.
