A true western with gunfights, trails to ride, camaraderie and evil men to thwart. Set just after the Civil War this story tells the story of Ike McAlister, his brother Rob and his sister Sue. Their parents were killed by bushwhackers and revenge is on their mind. They have one name, Manning, they are searching for and the evil man must pay his dues for the wrong he has done. With a trip to Colorado, new people to interact with, mysteries to solve and then Sue having disappeared the tale becomes more complex and a gang of good “guys” now pursue men and answers and the location of Sue. Fun to read – it took me back to reading my father’s copies of Louis L’Amour and other western authors. I would like to thank NK author services for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Westerns are outside my usual range of reading. Luckily, I had picked this up at a book signing to meet the local-author Popsugar prompt for 2018. I really enjoyed meeting the author, who's a bit of a cowboy, himself. This is a good read - engaging, smooth-flowing, entertaining all the way. It took me back to childhood days of watching Bonanza, The Ponderosa, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, and Wagon Train and reading a smattering of Zane Grey books, when salty cowboys and fiesty women made frontier living exciting. I was a little confused on the very first page as to why an outlaw being shot at would stop instead of galloping away, and later I thought it odd that a Kansas farmer (albiet with the rough-living experience of the Civil War) knew an awful lot about navigating and surviving high Rockies in the winter, but that didn't detract from a good mystery/adventure/light romance. Looking forward to more from Torreano - his flavor of storytelling will be a good addition to my go-to's.
