Matt Braun- Deadwood (St. Martin’s Press 2003) 3.5 Stars

Luke Starbuck has been hired by a smooth talking lawyer to hunt down a man who stole money from a rich mine owner. Now he must find a way to infiltrate the Hole-In-The-Wall. Things may not be just the way they were portrayed to him though, the first indicator being that people keep trying to kill him. Luke doesn’t like being setup and now he is out for blood. Who will be the last man standing?

The first couple of pages had me wondering about
While at sea, I found this novel in the ship's library and enjoyed it. Matt Braun appears to include more historical detail and some real life historical characters and settings in his novels. Deadwood is the first Luke Starbuck novel I had read and I decided to read some more when I had the opportunity.
A bit better than MANHUNTER--the other half of this two for one package--and sets up a potential conflict between Luke Starbuck and Butch Cassidy. Excellent.
