4.0 out of 5 stars Quinn, a good guy with complexities, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lost Ones (Kindle Edition)
Having read and enjoyed the previous book, The Ranger, I downloaded this one as well. In this one the transitory character of Quinn has decided to return and settle back into his home community having been persuaded to run for Sheriff. This is not however an easy transition for him and he is not portrayed as the returning hero idolised by all. He is certainly respected and liked by many but his return reawakens old issues and brings him into contact with old friends and memories, not all of which are what he would like.

You could say that yes, there is a conflict between good and bad but I would say that it is a little more complicated than that and it is this that gave me most enjoyment as a reader. To say "good and bad" would be I feel a little too clear cut and I would suggest that it is more a sense of a conflict between positive and negative choices. Some of the negatives are clearly evil while others are offered as something less straightforward. Decent people often make negative decisions and have to live with the consequences and at other times the positive decisions have motivations that are not all they might be.

In the end of course Quinn is clearly wearing the hat of the good guy but there is enough complexity around him to make the story enjoyable.
