Overview

The Rattlesnake Season by Larry D. Sweazy

From Spur Award-Winning Author Larry D. Sweazy

A Josiah Wolfe, Texas Ranger Novel

From the blood he spilled during the Civil War to his beloved wife, who died in childbirth, and his daughters, who were taken by the flu, ex-Texas Ranger Josiah Wolfe thought he had seen enough death for one lifetime. Now, with an infant son and a heart full of pain, he's rejoining the Rangers as part of the Frontier Battalion. But first, his captain needs him to escort Charlie Langdon to trial.

Wolfe and Langdon had a long history together as both lawmen and soldiers-until Langdon's lust for blood and money made him an outlaw. Wolfe knows his old friend has to pay. But the ride to the hangman's noose isn't going to be easy. Langdon's friends aren't going to give him up without a fight. And Wolfe's killer instinct may be his only chance to see his son again...

The book moves pretty quickly and the characters are easy to relate to. The only errors are assoicated with horse use and knowledge but other than that wonderful. I am waiting for the second book in the series.
