Recommends it for: no one
I would classify this as in the top 5 worst reads ever. The plot itself would have been great: former outlaw turns his life around and becomes a lawman and falls in love, with a Christian theme.

This book is written so poorly. It reads like something done for 5th graders with simplistic language and dialog. The Christian references are WAY over the top, even for a believer like myself. The secondary hero of the book is so self righteous its almost embarrassing. I really don't have the words to e

Outlaw Marshal
by Al & JoAnna Lacy

It’s 1887, in and around Denver, Colorado. Chief United States Marshal John Brockman, (already known to many readers as “The Stranger”) is back in the saddle, keeping law and order by capturing outlaws and adding stars to his crown by winning souls.

In Outlaw Marshal, Brockman brings several wanted men to justice, including well-known robber Whip Langford. As Brockman continues to visit Whip each time he brings a new inmate to the prison, he tries to lead the

A good book

I kind of wish that I had known this series comes before the Frontier Physician series and could of read this first. But that is useless now. This is still a good book. Many of the main characters are carry overs from the other series. The new members of the story are well developed and described. The Biblical passages that are referenced for leading a person to the Lord are repeated from one book to another and through the same book so is therefore very repetitive and is somewhat dis

Recommends it for: Absolutely nobody.
Shelves: bin-worthy
As a Christian, I truly hope that no non-Christian never makes the mistake of picking up this book. Nearly every conversation John has with Whip consists of telling him he will burn in hell, whilst his conversations with Christians consist of such syrupy and stilted dialogue that I felt physically ill and had to skim-read through most of it. If I had paid money for it, it would be in the rubbish bin right now. I could go on, but it would all be negative. I will say this though - it has a nice co ...more

Story was pretty good. A little more religious reference than some other Christian Romances. I know have to find the next one in this story & I have found that there is a series for both main characters in this title so I will be getting those to learn some background to their lives.
