Last sentence surprised me

The book being a sequel to "The Circuit Rider" continues with it twists and turns. Not as good in my opinion but still ok. Disappointed I paid $3.99 for it but..... The shock was the last sentence in the book which totally caught me off guard. The is no other book to elaborate Bird's sisters remark. Disappointed.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I like westerns...always have...always will. One thing that has always drawn me to the western is the strong male lead. He has good work ethics, he knows how to treat people, he is fair, he is tough and he can shoot fast and straight. I've never read one where a woman fills that role and if you would have told me that it could have been well written, I would have doubted. I doubt no more. Bird Hitchcock is awesome. Bird and Tower mak

I read this in one day so it's certainly easy to read and entertaining. The reason I didn't give it a higher rating is that it bothers me when a book falls short on details. Dani More frequently uses words wrong here and has historical inaccuracies. And the monumental coincidence that wraps up the book is just ridiculous. But that said, if you don't notice things like that---this is a fantastic book. If you do notice those sorts of details, then you might still enjoy the book, I did, but it ...more

Louis Lamour was one of the first author where I read his entire cannon. He did keep writing books long after I stopped enjoying them.
There were other western writers I enjoyed such as Jonas Ward who may have written under other names and the greatest of them all, Elmore Leonard.
I don't consider McMurtry or Cormac to be western genre writers. They write novels that take place in a geographic place that is southwestern USA but the violate the genre in too many ways. (and they are great novelists.

* I received this book through the Goodreads Sweepstakes*

I am not a fan of Westerns. Why? I don't like violence and killing and don't particularly like to read about it either. That said, this was a good book with a fast pace that keep me turning the pages instead of putting the book down. Loved the heroes and the manner in which the author wrote about them made me want to get to know more about them (that oftentimes does NOT happen). Bird is an incredibly wonderful character who I wish the auth

Love a good western themed story

Dan Ames' books never disappoint. They are fast paced, have some humor and seem plausible. The characters of Tower and Bird relationship is one of mutual respect, even though they are very different in personalities. This is a good old fashion murder mystery without unnecessary love scenes. The only disappointing thing about the story is the question of Bird's health. Maybe that will be addressed in the next circuit rider book. Will she quit drinking to save her o

Shelves: first-read
An easy read. A high school student would enjoy this. I timed myself, the chapters fly by in less than 2 minutes each. It's a good story, but lacks depth, description and the development of subplots. A drunk woman sidekick to a preacher with a past investigate a murder of a old west preacher. Devious under world activities twist together to draw the reader to the mildly surprising end. It's on the opposite end of the western literary spectrum from Zane Grey who over-describes scenes. I got the ...more

Another in the continuing (hopefully) adventures of Bird Hitchcock and Mike Tower. This time investigating the death of a fellow preacher, they come up against hidden enemies and both face death in grisly fashion. Well written by Dani Amore. I recommend this book highly for both western fans and Dani Amore fans.

This was a good read. I wasn't expecting it to be enjoyable and thought the subject matter would be quite tame. Instead the story was powerful enough to make a clean kill. It's an easy book, even though I'm sure it's meant to be a sequel to a book that I haven't read. It makes you care about its characters.

Fast paced with plenty of characters that you have to carefully keep track off.
Getting worried for Bird's alcoholism that's beginning to show its negative effects.
Fairly happy ending, if you call a cliffhanger a happy one.

Enjoyed reading

Started with the Circuit Rider and enjoyed. Continued with Killers Draw and the interesting characters. Easy but fun read. Will read Dan I Amore again.

Takes me back to how primitive the Old West could be! Dani Amore is an outstanding author and I adore the twists and turns and the end. You get to know the characters well.

This book was not what I expected. It was slow in places, even though I liked the story line. I will have to read another by the author before deciding whether or not to continue with the series.

Quick action, twists, ....

Turns and excellent characterization. A good sequel for The Circuit Rider. If all of Dan Ames' books are this good, I'm a fan
