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

Van Holt delivers a refreshing story line.
Mort Dudley is the leader of a group of outlaws that call themselves the Circle Eight bunch. Follow the group on an exhilarating, fast paced ride as karma a.k.a. Dan Potter catches up to them.
The `Eight" appear to be reformed businessmen, living a legitimate lifestyle as cattle ranchers. Turns out the `Eight' murdered the previous ranch owner to acquire the business, an evil act that sealed all their fates.
I don't want to spoil the Dan Potter character for anyone, but believe me when I say there are a lot of twists concerning that one!
Van Holt is rapidly rising in my personal list of favorite authors. If you like action western, try one of Van Holts books. You will not be disappointed.
Holt takes you on the journey, you are engaged to the point that you feel that you are a member of the "the Circle Eight". The situations they encounter as they try to leave behind a colorful past are just what you would expect in a great western. We find the Circle Eight trying to live as normal business men, trying to overcome their past as outlaws. As luck would have it, the past refuses to stay buried. A young gun, hell bent on revenge soon finds them and they are in for the fight of their lives. Like many great western writers before him, Holt's Blood in the Hills is not about "happily ever after" but the cold harsh realities of Karma at work. I enjoyed every minute of this thrilling tale and so will you. Hang on to your hat this is one ride you will not want to miss.
The story centers on a gang of former outlaws, the Circle Eight, who seemingly appear as legitimate businessmen in New Mexico working as cattle ranchers. Their prior indiscretions catch up to them and they find themselves in a fight for their lives when a young gunslinger named Dan Potter exacts his revenge. There are also a few interesting subplots and a not quite happy ending. Take the time to read it. You won't be disappointed.
