Now to the action. Bodie is not the most popular guy when he rides into town to collect his bounty accompanied by 5 day old corpses with their hot weather stench permeating the area. While waiting for his money he receives an envelope with a $500 bill in it and the opportunity to collect twice the $10,000 bounty if he brings in the Reefer Gang. This gang has the territory terrorized as they murder and rob then destroy everything they can't carry away with them. Bodie's enemies are out for revenge and stay on his trail as he chases the outlaws.
This is an action packed story and I didn't put it down until I finished it. If you like action\adventure\westerns you'll love this one.
A few scenes don't ring true - for example, he tries to get information from a mortally wounded bad guy who b basically tells him "hell no". As Bodie walks away, the bad guy says words to the effect - "you aren't going to just leave me here in pain". Instead of trying to bribe him with whiskey or the promise of a quick death, Bodie just shoots him straight out.
Sure Bodie is talented with a gun, smart at tracking, and a strong silent Western hero type. But the writer doesn't open him up to the reader so we can feel something for him. I love Westerns, so it is an ok read, but disappointing.
There are also a lot of typos and all quotations use only 'one quotation mark,' so that distracts from the reading experience. However, I do appreciate the work Piccadilly Publishing is doing by re-releasing these old western series for a low price. I will continue to read more of their books.
