5 stars for Shootout at Russell Springs by Andrew Weston #western #99cents #99c #bookreview

Title: Shootout at Russell Springs

Author: Andrew Weston

Genre: Western, Historical Western

Book Blurb:

A tornado tears through the open plains of Kansas, leaving death and destruction in its wake.

Yet that force of nature isn’t the only thing that might ravage the land. The Plains Indians are massing in their hundreds. Cheyenne, Comanche, Lakota, Kiowa, and Arapaho. All of them, turning their eyes toward the foreign settlers who encroach ever further into their ancestral hunting grounds with each and every passing year.

Already on the run from the law, the notorious Reno Gang also come calling, thinking that the residents of Elder Grove will be no match for a bunch of murdering horse thieves.

And just who are the two strangers from the east that come to town, acting all friendly, yet asking sly questions about the Pearl brothers? One thing’s for sure. . . Another storm is brewing. And when it strikes, not everyone will walk away.

My Review:

The excellent second part of the Pearl Brothers story is a must read for western fans. First book was pretty much Astrid doesn't live here anymore (so they searched for her). This book is truly a classic that could be referred to as Astrid get your gun.

The detail in this book is impressive. You are taken deeply into each scene with the incredible detail presented by this author. The character development is spot on. There is intense detail provided in all characters. This includes the black hats too.

This book grips you right from the first page. You can't read more than a few pages before you have a hard time putting it down. After a few periods of reading, I was literally dreaming about this story.

The storyline is rich and covers so much ground that you won't find yourself bored. The action and the suspense are first rate and keep the reader on edge. There is an excellent storyline between Noah and Astrid that will appeal to the western reader with a soft side.

A spectacular second part to this story that makes one eager for book three. If you have read the first book, then this book is for you. If you are fan of westerns done in a classic style, then this is for you. Another excellent western novel for the world to enjoy.

My Rating: 5 stars

Author Biography:

Born in the UK, Andrew Weston was captivated by the great western shows of the 1950s and 60s, where the likes of Wagon Train, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, The Lone Ranger, Bonanza, and the High Chaparral were regular fare on TV.

Having served around the world in both the military and law enforcement for well over three decades, Weston now lives in the Aegean Greek Islands with his wonderful wife of 24 years. It is from there that he continues his quest to write the perfect story, and discover a film to rival, “Once Upon a Time in the West.”
