A Bullet for the Bronc Buster is a rip-roaring, action-packed Western novel written by author GP Hutchinson. Set in the troubling times of the late Wild West, the novel spans both the wild countryside and the slick, crime-riddled cities of the Gilded Age of America, creating an exciting and traditional Western that fans of the old era are sure to enjoy. In this particular adventure, bronc-rider Quint Woodall receives a serious spinal injury that sees him kicked out of the show he was performing in for the rest of the season. Quint expects a quiet convalescence and hopeful recovery, but then a mysterious woman bursts into his life, demanding help. When he agrees, the hapless Quint finds himself embroiled in a corruption and kidnapping scandal that could end his life.
I really loved this novel because it encompassed every element that you would expect from a really fully rounded Western yarn. There was plenty of humor and hi-jinks in the initial interactions between the various characters, but then the plot gave way to a grittier, more realistic sense of threat as Quint was embroiled deeper and deeper into the central danger. From Chicago-slick mobster characters to wicked enemies in the Colorado plains, the cast is peppered with exciting dialogue, entertaining chases and terrifying moments of good old-fashioned peril. Overall, I’d definitely recommend A Bullet for the Bronc Buster to all traditional Western fans as a guaranteed enjoyable read, but also to readers who are looking to start out in this genre.
