Outstanding Book! 28 Aug. 2013
By Tom Horn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
1860 Arizona Territory - A huge shipment of government gold bars goes missing and is soon forgotten as the Civil War looms. Legend has it buried deep in mountain cave. But one thing is for certain - those associated with it have vanished never to be seen again.

1900 Bisbee, Arizona Territory - After a mysterious gold bar is found and traced to a 40 year old lost gold shipment, the United States Government is asking questions and Arizona Ranger and former Roosevelt Rough Rider "Peso" Banks is assigned to follow a cold trail that is almost as old as he is.

What then follows is a finely crafted historical novel which paints a colorful insight into an Arizona-Mexican frontier of a time long gone. A story of the bad men who preyed there and the few good men who were sworn to keep the peace.

Interspersed with murderers, rustlers, questionable allies - and one or two pretty women who actually add substance to the story rather than detract from it - Peso Banks uses his innate intelligence to decipher a cryptic old treasure map, his sharp eyes to follow almost invisible sign (tracks); and his natural cunning to survive and prevail through a sometimes beautiful but always desolate and treacherous wilderness.

A very likeable main character, Peso Banks' strong sense of honor, duty and his pragmatic sense of what's right guide him as he keeps the peace, mounted on his trusty horse "Salty" and armed with his old .44 Henry rifle, in an era that was the last of the Old West but still very much uncivilized and lawless.

The character development in "Peso" is excellent. Each character in this book adds color and substance to the story and the author's descriptions will make you feel as if you know these people - for better or for worse.
The banter between the characters is authentic, often times extremely funny and is indicative of an author who has known and paid attention to many a genuine old timer. This book drips with authenticity. From the clothes to the lingo, weapons, topography and the social conditions, it's all there.

A native Arizonan himself, the author, retired Navy Captain and Naval Aviator B.K. Bryans, weaves his love of Arizona and its rich history into an absorbing novel that will captivate the readers and take them back in time.

This is a VERY dangerous book. You have been duly warned.
It will take you away from where you are now and transport you back to an era that no longer exists and you will get lost there in telling of this story. When you finish this book, you are going to notice that the sun is up and the birds are chirping and you've read straight through the entire night without realizing it.

Peso Banks is a wonderful character who needs more telling. I fervently hope that the author develops and features him in a long string of novels to come.

As a former lawman, who spent 7 of his nearly 39 year career working in the Arizona border area, I have heard and read many, many yarns and stories of the legendary old west lawmen who rode the Arizona Territory before me.
Never though, have I encountered a tale as good as THIS one.
A very good book by a great guy! 10 April 2014

Good old B.K. Bryans is a hellacious good storyteller! And an AMERICAN hero! He's not only a good western writer, but a good WWII, Korean and Vietnam flight author. My hat's off to him as a warrior and patriot. The story starts off with a bang and it takes a while to sort out the timeline, but once you do it's a really good western. Just started on Brannigan and I'll guarantee it's another blockbuster!

A well written and edited book, I couldn't put it down until I finished it. The characters were real and well portrayed. I truly enjoyed this book.
Story of a Western Lawman 21 Sept. 2013
By Charles H. Berlemann - Published on

I like B K Bryans books because he writes about things he is familiar with so he can use his characters to explain the interesting details of their lives. This story is about a no-nonsense western lawman. But, I found the inner story about a man and his horse very interesting and heart warming. I have no experience with horses, but I can see parallels between my relationship with dogs I have owned and Peso's with his horse. I also like a story where the good guys win and the bad guys lose.
