I won a copy of this book through goodreads first reads. This was a good story, westerns is one of my favorite genre . I will have to check out the other books in the Matt Jensen series now. I looked them up and they all got great reviews.

Although I usually like western novels, I don't seek them out. This one was given to me by a friend who doesn't read much, but who really likes Johnstone's books.

Still, it was exciting enough to keep me entertained.
