Sam Bass Could Be A New And Successful Series

There is no need for me to rehash the plot of the store here; it has already been well reported. I would simply like to add that I am another who enjoyed this story which never seemed to drag and never let me down. Not only did the author make me like Sam Bass and Valerie, he also made me care about what was happening to them as the story worked its way to the conclusion. As the story develops, the character of Sam Bass is required by the plot to become "The Cowboy" who is a more mysterious shadow of the original Sam Bass character. It would seem the author could easily turn this protagonist into a most interesting characteer in future stores. While Sam Bass is not his real name, it would also seem to be the "right" name for the author to use for this protagonist if he should choose to have him appear in future stories. Sam Bass, the cowboy, just seems to have a good ring to it. Also, as the reader proceeds along the plot of this story, he is exposed to some interesting aspects of Cherokee Indian culture, and that also adds to an interesting story. Best wishes, Dave Wile

Please ban harriet klausner from posting. She constantly reveals every plot point of a book. This poster needs to be shut up.

    interesting thriller

    Off the North Carolina coast, Coast Guard Mate Ruben Dixon calls Sam Bass to ask him to search for the Osprey caught at sea by a storm. Though the weather is horrendous Sam flies into the storm and spots the ship giving the Coast Guard the coordinates. Ralph and Adele Stilley are rescued just before their vessel sinks. Raleigh Sentinel reporter Ira Cohn and TV news anchor Samantha Blackstone were sharing a tryst on the barrier island when they heard the story. They interview Sam, who becomes a national hero. --- However, instead of enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame, Sam finds his past has returned with a vengeance. Thugs arrive to kill ¿The Cowboy¿, but instead murder his beloved Valerie, a Cherokee widow and mother of a young boy. Vowing revenge, Sam travels to see Valerie's Cherokee grandfather to tell him what happened, but soon becomes a willing student to his mentor learning the old fashion Indian way of meting out justice. --- GUNS comes out of the gate on all cylinders as the mysterious Bass saves the lives of the Stilleys and keeps the fast pace going until the final avenging confrontation occurs even with sidebars involving aircraft, gun running and the Cherokee Nation. The cast is solid especially Sam, but when Phil Bowie dwells on his past, the story line loses some momentum though it also explains why he is a target. Still this is an interesting thriller starring a fascinating laconic protagonist who¿s obsessed with a bloodthirsty mission. --- Harriet Klausner

    Enjoyable to the end

    Read this on a whim. Never heard of Phil Bowie. I will sure be ready to read the rest of his books soon. Sometimes a little to discriptive to where you almost think it is a subplot but a very good book. Excitement and love all mixed into a good book. I recommend. Give it a try. You will probably enjoy it as much as I have.
