The first half of the book's pace was slow. Great first chapter but then it was slow until about the midpoint of the book. It was interesting but was slow about getting to the mysteries that had haunted Ed since his childhood. Then suddenly it was like Karnak the Magnificent. Every page had action or a piece of the puzzle to be found. It had fights that were great western 1 on 1s, out and out cage match type struggles and surprises popping up like in the whack a mole game. I gave it a 4 for the slow first half but the book probably deserved a 4.5. A great read....shu

The fiction of John D Nebitt is always excellent. "Stranger in Thunder Basin" is another notch in his artistic belt that jumps out at you.

From the opening chapter, where a young Eddie Dawes witnesses has fathers' murder, to the deliberate journey to find the truth about the day. The King Diamond Ranch seems to be home to many of the answers, and once Bridge, the man who killed his father is gone, the issue is still unsettled. The "Dead Hand" theory holds sway in this territory, and the circuitous path is satisfying.

Mr Nesbitt writes a great novel. Like his previous efforts, "Stranger", is a good read, just after Tombstone, and Gunsmoke...

Ed Dawes knows nothing of his real ancestry; his surname comes from the family that took him in when he was five, after the old man he called "Pa-pa" was murdered almost in front of him one snowy morning. Ed's foster family told him the man was his grandfather, and he's never had any reason to suppose otherwise. Now, grown up and working as a blacksmith's helper in Glenrose, he unexpectedly sees once again the man who committed the murder; it's a face he knows he'll never forget. A friendly cowboy provides the man's name and the ranch he works on, and Ed, almost on impulse, sets out to learn why his "grandfather" was killed. Nesbitt skillfully reveals the truth a little at a time, and the reader is as surprised as Ed when the whole story finally comes out. Also, like John Trace/Bennett Foster, he has a good touch at showing the country, and readers who enjoy old-fashioned Westerns with sharp action, a hint of suspense, and a varied cast of characters should not be disappointed in him.

I love to read westerners and John has written some of the best fiction tales about the old west. I highly recommend this book.
