Overview

The Zarbo brothers are seasoned outlaws with a reputation for killing. Already wanted in two states, they set their sights on Colorado and a string of bank robberies. They don’t count on running into Chief U.S. Marshal John Brockman.

John arrests Lee Zarbo, but his brothers remain in hiding. Lee’s sentence to death by hanging incites them to desperate measures. They’ll do anything to get him out alive. Even kidnap the Chief U.S. Marshal’s daughter.

When John learns of his young daughter’s captivity and the conditions for her release, he must turn to the Lord for direction. It takes all the faith he can muster to wait for the answer. Without freeing a dangerous criminal, can John find Ginny before they kill her?

    John Stranger Is Back In Deadlock

    Al and Joanna Lacy in their new book, "Deadlock" Book Two in the Return Of The Stranger series published by Multnomah returns us to the life of Chief U.S. Marshal John Stranger and His wife, Breanna.

    There are three Zarbo brothers and they are working their way to Colorado where they feel it is safe to continue their bank robberies and killings. They made a mistake not knowing about the Marshal and they pay for it when John arrests one of them. In an effort to prevent their brother from hanging the two remaining brothers kidnap Ginny and hold her hostage until John releases their brother. There is also an event that happens to Breanna as well as other sub-plots that cause the reader to turn the pages as fast as possible.

    This is the third series with John and Breanna; the first, "The Journeys Of The Stranger", the second, "The Angel of Mercy" and now "The Return of The Stranger". Any book written by the Lacys is sure to be a winner but once you add in John and Breanna you have one of the best romances and explosive Western action. One thing I have learned from reading this series is never touch John's family-it gets him really angry. As John prays and leans heavily on God for how to rescue his daughter he mounts a search and rescue mission that draws ever closer to a life and death decision.

    This is a very exciting book and a wonderful addition to the series. I recommend this book highly and am highly looking forward to the next book in the series.

    The latest Stranger inspirational western police procedural is a fabulous historical thriller

    In 1888 the Zarbo brothers are the meanest outlaws in the west. They are wanted for murders and bank robberies as they do not care who dies when they do a job.

    In Colorado, U.S. Marshal John "The Stranger" Brockman arrests Lee Zarbo, but his siblings Todd and Chice remain free with plans to liberate him. Lee faces the gallows so the Zarbo brood decides to steal a page from the Old Testament by kidnapping John's thirteen-year old daughter Ginny. If he wants her back alive, he must let Lee go; even the Lord cannot give John solace as he loves his three children and his wife with all his heart.

    The latest Stranger inspirational western police procedural (see OUTLAW MARSHAL and the mid nineties Western Christian fiction saga The Journeys of the Stranger) is a fabulous historical thriller once the key players are introduced to the audience, but especially after the abduction of Ginny. John and his wife Breanna have doubts that Jesus will protect their daughter; their fifteen year old son John has given up on the Lord while his nine year old adopted sister Meggie expects nothing less than a miracle. Feeling like he is being tested, John struggles with what to do as his fans will rejoice with his journey to the Savior.
