This book could have been great. The actual story is so full of potential and Marshall Sixkiller, a real person, should have made for a great story. However, this book was bland and dry, the characters felt emotionless, there were breaks in the story line that were not needed and distracted from what was happening. It's sad that I found the information from internet searches more fascinating than the storytelling in this book. It wasn't that I couldn't find anything good but the flaws were so gl ...more

A truly wonderful gripping tale of yesteryear! The good guy wins. Every one of this Author's books literally can not be put down.

I found this book hard to get into. Maybe I need more time with the hero, as he is a real, historic person.

This a very good enry as a new series from the Johsntone Clan. It's a bit over long. Seems it could have been broken up since this is still another Johnstone series. Despite the minor criticism of length, this book is head and shoulders above most all other contemporary books involving being over long. At least it's a well written and not excessive over long. The story fills in well.

Please see my review of 'The American' by Andrew Britton that i read just before this book. The writing in this bo

You should not miss this book. It lays out the life of John Henry from a child in the nations, thru the civil war, head of the Indian Police and into his new life as a US Marshall. John Henry Sixkiller is a soft spoken solid man who does his job with a sure and steady hand and an analytic brain. This puts him far and above most of the men he goes up against. He is ready and willing to track and shoot down injustice and has the determination to see it thru. This is the new hero in town.

I won this book on a Goodreads Giveaway. This was the first Western I read in over 20 years! I really enjoyed the story. The characters are well developed and the action is not-stop. The authors have painted a picture of the old west that is inspiring. I will surely read the next book in this enjoyable series.

I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I have not read any westerns since Louis L'Amour stories over 20 years ago. Perhaps a real fan of the genre would have enjoyed this more. It struck me as a collection of stories with the same hero. The characters were stereotypes and I never really connected with them. Not a bad book, but I don't care to read more.

Solid Western, good characters but not as flawed as they could be nor are the obstacles what they could be. Sixkiller is too good to ever risk defeat and thus I was left feeling less satisfied ultimately, especially with an abrupt, rushed as usual final confrontation.
