We've seen, heard, and read it all before-the relentless lawman on a long, hard trail to bring a killer to justice. Bank robber Luther Cordell gets busted out of jail, and likable Sherriff Tom Blessing, good friend of ex-Texas Ranger Andy Pickard, takes a bullet in the gut. Blaming himself for Blessing's death, Andy, whose claim to fame is that he spent his boyhood years with the Comanche Indians, gets his old ranger authority back and chases Cordell across most of Texas before the final showdown. Along the way, we get to see what a nice guy Cordell really is-brave and honorable-and how much he regrets his life of crime. The outlaw trail is a hard trail to follow (double meaning intended all the way). This is the latest novel of a series that began well with Badger Boy in 2001. Kelton is the preeminent author of Westerns in America today, and this is a slick and easy read, but there isn't an original idea or character in the book. Recommended for Kelton's fans.-Ken St. Andre, Phoenix P.L.Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
