Reviewed by Kira M for

Hamlet is tired of living on a farm with his family. When he decides to go seek his fortune, he gets captured by a group of bandits called the Joaquin Murieta Band.

As he spends time with them, he develops comradeship despite the life-threatening abuse he gets from Jack, the bandit who keeps ears as souvenirs from his victims. Soon, he is faced with a moral decision.

If he stays with the band, the only friends he's ever really had, he might get mistaken for a member. If he returns to his father, he will never hear the end of his failed fortune attempt. Will Hamlet return to his father or stay with the John Murieta Band?

A gunslinging, action-filled adventure. Filled with danger and death threats, complex characters, and a plot that keeps you interested, lovers of the Wild, Wild West and thrill-seeking adventure will enjoy reading BANDITS.
