Deeanne Gist certainly has a great sense of humor, and this book was definitely quite funny at times, but it almost felt too quirky. It was a fun, quick read that held my interest, but is not my favorite from this author. I thought the research Ms. Gist did on the time period, the Texas Rangers, robbery gangs, and telephone switchboards, etc. was used very effectively and really added to the book. I also appreciated the epilogue and notes on what was based on reality and what was not. The characters of Georgie and Lucious took quite a while to grow on me, but I loved the ending. I was able to pick up on who Frank Cromer was way too early in the novel, even though the author threw in some clues to lead you down a different path. I recommend it for those who like historical fiction and learning about life in the early 1900's, but if you are looking for Christian fiction showing the character's developing faith and how they live as Christians, this one is not that type of book.
