Steven C. Lawrence – Saddle Justice (1957)


Vintage Western
Wild Wild West Reading Challenge #29
TBR #150
Date Finished: December 29, 2018

An army sergeant rides down from Fort Abraham Lincoln in Dakota Territory to Nebraska to investigate the lynching death of his younger brother, who was involved with various business deals and the Mexican-American community. The sergeant finds the town riled up against the Mexican-Americans and faces some of that prejudice himself as he tries to find out the truth in a town ruled by a cold-hearted rancher and his gunmen.

A fast-moving Gold Medal paperback original that has a more-or-less standard plot and characters, this is nevertheless entertaining enough for a day’s read.

And with that one off the TBR pile, I’ve reached 150 for the year and achieved Mt. Olympus.
