In A Marshal's Destiny by Raymond Cook, Jacob Chaney realizes that taking a job as a U.S. Marshall will probably get him killed unless he learns to become a better draw. This is where Annie Coulter and David Liley come in as trainers. They can only prepare him so far; he will have to rely on his wits most of the time. When Jacob gets a special assignment to find out who has been robbing the stagecoach carrying gold, he heads out only to face Indians, wicked white men, and a mute woman needing to find her way to her family. Never did he fathom the danger, love, and solitude he would face as he rode to his destiny.
As the fourth book in the series that Raymond Cook has put together about pioneer life in Colorado, A Marshall’s Destiny will entertain Western lovers. A Marshall’s Destiny is exciting as this young man paves his way through the Wild West, defending those who have been wronged, cheated, and killed. Raymond Cook turns his character into a hero as he purges the town of thieves and killers. I enjoyed the plot and the bits of humor spread throughout its pages and I would read this action-packed novel again. Cook opens your eyes to a world where hesitation equals death. He created a town without law and the depths people would stoop to for a little gold. I would recommend this novel to those who love a good, gun-slinging Western tale.
