West Texas Kill was pretty good, but certainly isn't Johnny D. Boggs' best novel. The structure is well done, with most chapters ending in a cliffhanger. The pace is non-stop action. The characters, though, were just lacking. The only one I really liked was Moses.

Boggs doesn't let the story drag with too much historical detail, but he has enough real place names, real situations like tired horses, slow travel, empty guns, to keep it gritty and realistic. No one just uses a gun. Boggs is always very specific about the brand and caliber of the weapons being used.

I guess my biggest problem with the book is simply that it was pretty predictable. That notwithstanding, I enjoyed the ride quite a bit.
