Overview

Five years ago, Priest McClaren and his younger sister, Molly, were forced to watch as their parents were murdered by a desperate pair of outlaws. Though one is dead, the other, Yuman Dean, is still on the loose. Now Molly is a haunted bounty hunter and all Priest wants is to run a little store with his partner, Lamarr, an ex-slave and ex-Union soldier. But it won't be that easy. First Priest and Lamarr will have to deal with Septemus Hart, the wealthy landowner who's out to own the whole town. Then, when Molly has to give up the hunt, it will fall to Priest to finally track down Yuman Dean … and make him pay.

Okay, I've never read a so-called real western in my life before. I've liked the horror-westerns I've read before by the likes of Joe Lansdale and Richard Matheson and anthologies like Skull Full of Spurs and Razored Saddles, but this is the first straight one ever. And I loved it. Pic has a real flare for dramatic detail that makes a story come to life in a way few others ever do. You can feel all the turmoil the characters must deal with, and the humor is witty and realistic and powerful on a number of levels. Priest & Lamarr are more than friends...they're partners and soulmates of a sort who help to shore up each other's faults when the time comes. The other characters are equally unique, passionate, weird, and funny. Imagine a Grandfather who is crazy and sometimes believes he's an Apache. A teenage girl gunslinger, who's pregnant to boot. A welathy landowner who respects his black son but refuses to acknowledge him. Add into the mix a red-light house, a blood debt that needs to be paid, and two heinous killers, and you've got one incredibly fast but involving story. Definitely pick it up.
