I had the good fortune to be assigned as the editor for this book. As an editor of Western books, I found this book to be face paced full of humor and realistic situations. I found the humor refreshing in a western. Pierce uses believable characters to move this story along and has a great plot that will leave you wanting to read further books by Lee Pierce.
5.0 out of 5 starsA Rollicking Good Ride
December 2, 2007Format: Paperback
ROUGH JUSTICE is a Western in the tradition of pulp writers such as A. Leslie Scott, Tom Curry, and J. Edward Leithead. It also has some violence reminiscent of the Picadilly Cowboy school of Western writers from the United Kingdom.
This is a story full of action and adventure, with an especially likeable heroine in the young Comanche woman Hawk Wing.
The Texas Rangers also are a major part of the story, so the book should be a must addition to any Texas Ranger fiction fan's collection.
ROUGH JUSTICE has enough riding, shooting, and fighting to satisfy anyone who loves a good-old fashioned Western shoot-'em-up. My only caveat would be there are a couple of scenes which might be a bit rough for those with slightly squeamish stomachs. Other than that, this is a highly recommended read.
Watch for Lee's next book.
