The Trailsman #286

as by Jon Sharpe
Signet, August 2005

Skye Fargo saves a young drunkard from being killed. Turns out this young man is Vance Forrestal, son of a local business bigshot, and he needs help getting to San Antonio for his own wedding. Seems Vance’s future father-in-law doesn’t want the marriage to go ahead and will even go as far as to have Vance killed to stop him marrying his daughter. So Fargo agrees to get Vance to his wedding in one piece...

This is a very entertaining book that moves along at a swift pace as Fargo attempts to keep Vance alive. It’s not just Vance’s disagreeable personality that doesn’t sit well with Fargo, Vance’s story just doesn’t seem to add up either.

The author (James Reasoner) keeps the questions coming so that before long the reader is hooked and just wont be able to put the book down before finding out the answers to just who wants Vance dead, and why.

With a supporting cast of some great characters, who may or may-not be about to double-cross Fargo, or each other, the author presents the reader with another great entry into the Trailsman series.

If you’re looking for a good western to read then give this one a try, I doubt you’ll be disappointed.
