BLOOD IN THE HILLS Van Holt (Kindle Edition).
I have now read several of Van Holt's stories and BLOOD IN THE HILLS comes up to expectations. All of Mr. Holt's westerns have a raw edge with lots of gunfights and this one is no different, there is plenty of action, some surprises and some not so happy or expected endings all trade marks of this author's style.
A bunch of rustlers and outlaws have moved onto the range after killing the land owner and stealing his cattle herd. They are mostly ignored by the local ranchers and towns people until a stanger comes to town who they first try to frame for the murder and then attempt to kill. The quiet stranger has his own agenda, he is out for revenge and more than capable of holding his own against the outlaw gang. Good staple western actioner diet.
A very enjoyable and readable novel with a good storyline which has a dash of mystery added to the action but no real surprises.
Kindle Edition: A few spelling errors but otherwise well formatted. 4/5
