Wild Wild West Reading Challenge #11
Date Finished: August 18, 2018
A middle-aged marshal is ready to hang it up and finally buy the ranch that he’s always dreamed of. His young deputy isn’t good enough to take over, however, so he joins the posse to help chase a gang of express office robbers. He accidentally shoots another townsman after the gang and has to go on the run himself with the help of a woman on the run from herself and an arranged marriage.
An exciting, well-told story that moved along quickly, but perhaps didn’t turn out to be terribly memorable. Michael Hammonds seems to have written only a few novels, seemingly either westerns or espionage, none of which I’d heard of.
