    Ballard does it again!

    This much anticipated second book in Ballard's 'Doc' Holliday trilogy does not disappoint. This story picks up where Borrowed Time left off, as Doc, dentist turned gambler and gunman, follows his friend Wyatt Earp to the boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona Territory. From the moment Holliday sets foot on the dusty Tombstone streets, he risks life and safety for his friends. Although Doc backs Earp against the likes of Curly Bill Brocious, Johnny Ringo, and their gang of ruffians, the Georgia gentleman emerges in his own right, rather than the often portrayed shadowy appendage attached to Wyatt Earp's coat-tails. Ballard has thoroughly researched her subject 'she has written numerous non-fiction articles about Holliday for The Tombstone Times' and it shows. Seamlessly blending fact and fiction, Ballard delves into Doc's interpersonal relationships: Clementine, the love of his life his love-hate relationship with Kate 'Fisher' Elder his abiding friendship with Wyatt Earp and his antagonistic interactions with both Bat Masterson and Earp's brother Virgil. In this traditional Western, the action storyline is paralleled by Holliday's struggle to live as normal a life as possible while dealing with an illness that, in that time period, proved fatal more often than not. In one particularly poignant scene, Doc shows his humanness as he commiserates with Earp over his friend's loss of an unborn child through miscarriage before disclosing his own loss of a child through abortion. Holliday in Tombstone brings John Henry 'Doc' Holliday nearly full circle as he battles his personal demons while struggling to stay true to a friendship he values above all others. This is a good, fast read that will appeal to men and women alike.
