The very first thing I feel I need to say is that A Brothel, A Beauty And A Murderer by Raymond Cook is definitely for adults only. The second thing I want to say is that I enjoyed it a lot. Once I started reading it, I just couldn’t stop. I have to say Raymond Cook sure managed to surprise me with this Western tale. I have never seen the old west depicted in such a good-hearted raunchy fashion. I loved it. It was very entertaining, and the ending is satisfying. This is a tale of love, murder, revenge, and especially lust. If you are not offended by strong sexual depictions in novels, you are going to like A Brothel, A Beauty And A Murderer.
The first thing that I noticed in this novel is the feeling of history being told. The first part of the novel could be titled A History of Prostitution in Silverton, Colorado. The excellent and beautiful pictures by Tryfon G. add to the old west setting immensely and I appreciate Raymond Cook taking the time to find and add them. This kind of attention to detail can be the difference between a good novel and a great one. The plot is nothing new. It is love and vengeance in the old west. But these characters make it feel fresh and new. I loved all the women depicted here, but I especially loved the protagonist, Annabelle, and her husband, Henry. If you want to read a lust-filled adventure of the old west, then there is no better story around than A Brothel, A Beauty And A Murderer.
