My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
Jack Laramie is the grandson of legendary US Marshall Cash Laramie (search for this in the sidebar and it should bring up my reviews for those). He is a PI for hire and lives out of the back of his horse trailer.
I’ve read these (long) short stories before on kindle but it is good to get them gathered together for the first time in a real book. It’s sometime since I read them so they felt new to me but familiar.
They pull no punches (quite literally at times) but this is hard boiled noir with a hint of the old west but set after the Second World War.
They are exactly how I imagine the old west would have evolved, and the character of Jack is as alive as his grandfather was.
Disclosure: David Cranmer is a friend of mine, but I bought this book with my own money and I have received no recompense for this review from the authors or publishers. The thoughts are my own.
