"Here's to us bachelors. May we live fast,but die easy and smiling." Jan. 15 2007
By J. Guild - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This March,2006 episode of Longarm is a real corker. A simple task for Curtis Long should be getting to work in the morning.An encounter with a pair of yahoos and a young filly leads to some exciting action for Longarm;and he doesn't even have to leave town.

Marshal Billy Vail has an assignment for Curtis that inolves railroad travel,some real dangerous train robbers,some other lawmen that Longarm could do without, who feel the same way about him.

Longarm gets into some very serious trouble;and it is touch and go whether the Piautes,the outlaws,the rattlesnakes or his wounds be his downfall. This is a well written,yarn;filled with every kind of Old West action thatwill be tough to put down. Some wonderful characters keep appearing throughout the story.

In each episode we get to know a bit more about our hero.In this story ,he is in his mid thirties,he's 6'4" and weighs over 200 pounds;and tough as nails.Rutherford B. Hayes is President;therefore this story is set between 1877 and 1881.

"Even with Curtis Long in a hospital bed you better be damned careful or he'll figure a way to punch your ticket for a one way ride to boot hill."

A great read and one you won't want to miss.

Another exciting western adventure with Deputy Marshal Custis Long. Aug. 18 2010
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This western adventure is well-written and the story flows smoothly. As a long time fan of the Longarm series, I have often complained about the different writing styles each story contains. Anyone who has read previous Longarm westerns knows that "Tabor Evans" is a host of writers working from a basic formula. Most of the time it works well, but sometimes it is frustrating. For example, in some stories Deputy Marshall Custis Long requests his favorite drink(Maryland Ryu) and uses western dialogue. However, in another novel his personality changes and he drinks whiskey and speaks like a college graduate.

In spite of these flaws, this western is still a good read. It begins, like many of the Longarm series, with a meeting with his boss, Marshall Billy Vail. There are also two railroad detectives. The railroad requests federal help because of a number of robberies and murders by a band of thieves. There is tension from the start between Custis and the railroad detectives. Without giving too much away and spoil it for the reader, the story moves quickly and there are enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages.

In conclusion, if you are into reading western novels, whether a Longarm fan or not, you will enjoy this book. Rating: 4 stars Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Monadnock Defensive Tactics System)
