Ambush On McClure Pass by Raymond Cook is a tale from the Wild West. Patty Ford’s family had been ruthlessly murdered by rustlers and their cattle herd stolen, leaving Patty the only survivor. Transported back to town by the schoolteacher and parson, Patty’s gunshot injuries are treated while the sheriff arranges for her family to be buried. The Kilpatrick brothers have killed seven men over a card game in Redstone, and are ambushed and shot on their way to Marble. The sheriff thinks they are responsible for the murder of the Ford family and arrests them, but they are innocent and slowly a bond grows between them and Patty. When the long winter ends, Patty sets off to find the rustlers. Her mission? To kill them all. Settling in Colorado Springs, she opens a saloon, hoping one day those men will walk through her door. Will they? Can Patty finally get the revenge she wants for her family? This is her story.

Ambush On McClure Pass by Raymond Cook is a great story, a proper tale of the Wild West. It has everything you would expect; the cattle rustlers, the cowboys, the gun-toting card sharks and more! Raymond Cook appears to have poured his heart and soul into this wonderful story, a tale of tragedy, despair, revenge and retribution, everything a Western story needs. The characters, and there are a lot of them, are very well developed and, although this book is part of a long series, I found it easy to read and keep up with. It flowed well, there was plenty of action and a lot of raw emotion. I loved it and I think any fan of the Wild West era will love it too.
