Review; Death Rattle (The Guns of Samuel Pritchard #1) by Sean Lynch
Description from Goodreads
From acclaimed author Sean Lynch comes the epic saga of Samuel Pritchard, a young man coming of age in the Civil War, riding tall with the Texas Rangers, and becoming one of the greatest gunfighters of his time . . .
THE LEGEND BEGINS
In 1863, a teenaged boy fled his home in Atherton, Missouri, to escape the power-hungry men who murdered his father and stole his family's land. He joined the Confederacy under an assumed name and led guerilla raids in the Civil War. Then came a decade as a Texas Ranger. Now, after ten blood-soaked years, he is finally coming home. Finally using his real name. And finally getting revenge against the cold-hearted devils who destroyed his family and his life . . .
This is the story of Samuel Pritchard. Now a small town sheriff with a long history of violence, a deep sense of honor, and wild streak of justice as dangerous as the guns that made him famous . . .
My Thoughts on the BookDeath Rattle is a fast paced western that was an easy read as well. I liked the character Samuel Pritchard and his sense of justice. I can admit this was the first time I've read a western, but it will not be the last, as I want to read the rest of the series.
