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.

Vengeance is Mine

This is a nice short western story. Westerns make a nice change of pace from the usual books as they reminded me of the Western movies of my youth when right and wrong was so simple. Gene Engene did a good job narrating the story. The story is classic for a western where a 14 year old male youth sets off the avenge the murder of his father. The story moves right along and builds on the Littlejohn family. Life on the ranch was hard and they only had themselves do depend on. Reading the list of daily chores makes one glad to live in the modern age of running water, electricity and modern stoves.
