Dan Whitton’s father was the most hunted and desperate killer the west had ever known—not hunted by the law, but by the man who had
destroyed his chance of living in peace with the girl he loved.
Now Bob Whitton was dead, and the man who had finally succeeded in having him killed was still alive, fat and prosperous and gloating in his triumph, and already planning a similar fate for Bob Whitton’s son, Dan.
So Dan Whitton strapped on his guns and headed for the wild Cimarron country where his father had spent so much time, hunted by his enemies. Those who were still alive would soon be hunting Dan Whitton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Pulp Western 13 Dec 2013
By Michael Gallagher - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an enjoyable, quick read with the classic western theme of good guy tries to cure an injustice against the bad guys, with the good guy being a one-man army, finds a girl, and off they ride into the sunset. The author’s descriptions of the scenery, etc. are realistic, and if you like the classic pulp westerns and have a couple of hours to spare I would recommend this one as it was an interesting diversion to the genres I've been reading lately.

I originally picked this up during a Kindle promotion for free and, as I type this review, I see the pricing has reverted to $2.99 cents for the Kindle version: If you enjoy a Frank Gruber type of Western you’ll enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vengence is sweet - and so is this novel 26 Aug 2013
By Dianne O'keefe - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
It's the first time I'm trying out Von Holt, and I enjoyed what I discovered. To call his novels, based on this book, simplewesterns would be to do it an injustice.
Here we have an author who adds depth to his characters and puts together interesting story lines that hit on time-old themes such as vengeance and survival.
Dan Whitton is out to get the killer and tormentor of his father, and what lies in store for him is quite an adventure. I recommend this novel, and plan to read more from Von Holt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read 15 Oct 2013

All of Van Holt's books so for have been entertaining reading. I grew up during the 50's during the time that wesstern movies were king and the early 60's when we got our first TV and the TV westerns like Gunsmoke and Rawhide were the shows we waited all week to watch, in the 50's we went to my Grandmother's house on Saturday morning to watch the Sat morning wessterns like Roy Rogers and Sky King. This was a good book and quite entertaining. Typical wesstern book, O am enjoying this author and I am working my way his books, reaading about 1 a week or so. Recomended

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Western 6 Sep 2013
By Mike D. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Dan Whitton is young man from a small town. Having grown up without a father, he sets out to find his real life hero, gunslinger Bob White. He soon finds him and saves him from Tobe Crawford and his gang. Bob White takes Dan Whitton under his wing and becomes the father Dan never had.

The American West is the setting of this excellent adventure story from Van Holt. Son of the Gunfighter is an exciting read from beginning to end. Whether it's an Indian ambush or standoff with bandits, Son of the Gunfighter will always keep you entertained.

I honestly have very little criticism for this novel. The attention paid to the details of the 19th century American West is fantastic. The Wild Wild West really comes to life from the depictions of the rustic guns of the gunfighters and the small frontier towns of the American West that the protagonist Dan Whitton encounters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daddy Issues 3 Sep 2013
By Aprilrain - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
In this H.B.W., Dan Whittle, from a small town near Kansas City, grew up reading about a famous gunslinger in magazines. His mother was shunned for having a child with a married man, as well as having a child out of wedlock. Of course, this left Dan to have a miserable life, accept for when he read about Bob White, the gunslinger. His mother passed, and let him know that if she wanted anything for him, it was to find his father.
This gunslinger, according to rumor, lived near a place called Pierceville. Dan moves to Pierceville after deciding to find his childhood hero and leaving a town where nobody respects him. Deciding to lie in wait in a Saloon, he comes across information that White shows up from time to time. What nobody knew, however, was Seven strangers would show up looking for him too. After realizing these men are set to kill his hero, he decides to help. As 'it' hits the fan, Bob White is wounded by one of the strangers and Dan wounds the stranger in return. Suddenly, Dan Whittle is in the middle of an altercation that has nothing to do with him at all...or does it?
I thought the obviousness of it all would make this hard for me, but it turns out this one is STILL and adventure worth checking out. I recommend this for any Holt fans.
