Book Review of
Death Rides a Chestnut Mare
Waylaid by a pack of murdering outlaws, Daniel Strange’s lifeless body is left dangling at the end of a rope. Now, a mysterious gunslinger is on the vengeance trail, packing Strange’s trademark twin Colts, and answering to the same name.
With fiery green eyes and a temper to match, he won’t stop until every last man who killed Strange shares the same fate. And as each bullet finds its mark, his victims will die never knowing the truth: that Daniel Strange may be dead and buried, but his daughter is alive—and killing…
This was almost as good as a L’amour book. It did have more stuff in it though about girls, gambling, and drinking. It was also a little awkward in that the main character is a girl who is disguised as a boy to kill her father’s murders. Like her conversations with boys and other girls who flirt with her. I did enjoy the plot and some of the details about the old west. I loved how Compton kept me reading the story with all his great details and plot. I will definitely be reading more of his books in the near future.
