Publisher's Summary

Even at the age of 14, folks were calling him the youngest bounty hunter in Texas. His pa said he was more man than most men. But now his pa lay dead in a dusty Lubbock, Texas street, back-shot by a wealthy and powerful New Mexico rancher. Over his father's grave he swore to make things right. Neither his age, impossible odds, nor a thousand miles of unforgiving desert would keep Tad Littlejohn from righting a terrible wrong.

Continuation of "Death Rides a Pale Horse"

"Vengeance Is Mine" is the continuation of "Death Rides a Pale Horse" --- although both books can stand alone. It's about T.J. Littlejohn's son, Tad, who seeks vengeance against the wealthy rancher who shot his father in the back. He practices his gun skills for 2 years and at age 16 feels ready to face his father's killer. He places a $500 bounty on the rancher "Dead or Alive" then goes after the bounty. He, his adopted brother, and a gunslinger turned Deputy Sheriff in Tad's hometown, travel to New Mexico to face the rancher and his hired guns.

Dusty Rhodes westerns are brought to life by Gene Engene. Dusty portrays well the violence characteristic of the old west by men who have no conscience, and the men who want to bring them to justice.

Although I am not into violent literature, Dusty's books are stories with depth and a touch of realism depicting families who lived in that era. I find them quite entertaining.

THEY NEEDED KILLING

WOLF CRIES AT NIGHT
This is my fourth book by Rhodes and the first I could not give five stars too, but believe me AS SURE AS GOD MADE LITTLE GREEN APPLES, I will be reading much more Dusty Rhodes. His stories are not complicated and are guaranteed to entertain. This is a sequel, but can be read as a stand alone. In my wish list is a Rhodes book, called Man Hunter, which I am betting from what I learned in this book, is a prequel to this series. I will let you know.

HE MUST BE TALKING TO YOU, YOUR THE ONLY OLD MAN IN THE PLACE
Here are some small reasons, this did not get five stars. The biggest reason is the slow melodramatic start to this book. It starts with a funeral for Little John who died in book one. (not a spoiler, book one starts out by telling you he is going to die.) This funeral drags out for an hour, which is a long time for a six hour book. I'm not sure why DR bothers to describe the men in the book, cause with the exception of one out of about ten, they are all broad shouldered and have slim waists. The men keep leaving their women at home all by themselves, it happened in book one and in this book. Each book has proven that it is a dangerous country with different tribes of Indians who are known to rape and kill and plenty of bad white guys who do the same. It is a regular event for them to show up at the farm, so why would you leave your women unprotected?

YOU TALKING TO ME SONNY?
Gene Engene is perfect. When filling out my wish list and deciding on a couple of westerns, I noticed one was read by Gene and the other not, so I had no decision to make. Gene will always be my pick.

KEEP A SHARP EYE, I'LL BE COMING SOON
