Author Jerry S. Drake was new to me when I picked up SIERRA SKULLDUGGERY, the sequel to
THE GUNFIGHTER'S APPRENTICE. I was quite pleased with the book and easily got into it without having read the first.

A bit too much like the old pulp westerns for my personal taste.

The book should appeal to those who like the 'classics'.
