The Wild West was an era when gunfighters and other outlaws were a common phenomenon. “Big Dan” Coulter had been a gunfighter, and he killed Gene Martin in Brodie, California, in 1877. Although Dan gave up this lifestyle and settled down in Marble, Colorado, his past followed him there. Dan married Annie Sinclair, and they bought a ranch outside Marble. They became close friends with two neighboring families, the Lileys and the Bates. Three years later, Gene's brother Andy Martin, Buckskin Mark and Adam Banks murdered Dan, and beat and raped Annie, leaving her for dead. However, Annie recovered and set out to find the three men to exact revenge for their horrific acts. In Death Rides on Three Horses Book #3, written by Raymond Cook, an exciting tale of Annie’s adventurous plan unfolds. Although her many friends in Marble were not sure if they would ever see her again, they supported her desire to avenge Dan’s death.

This story depicts the harsh life that existed in the Wild West for several decades. There are many gunfights, saloons, robbers and other outlaws, freezing winter weather and difficult traveling conditions. And, there are also caring neighbors who will extend a helping hand and nonjudgmental support when needed. The author has clearly illustrated these paradoxical factors, as settlers found both joy and heartbreak during this era. The characters in the story are well defined, and the reader feels as if he/she has met each one in person. The tale flows smoothly, and the book is a quick read. Author Raymond Cook has written an engaging story in Death Rides on Three Horses Book #3.
