Lone Star Justice by 2-Bre Krew is the third book in the 19th-century Western series The Chronicles of Hondo Stone and Kid Carter, set in San Antone, Texas, where a fierce war rages between the Texas Rangers and an organized crime syndicate called the Jenkins Faction, led by the tyrannical cattle baron J.B. Jenkins. Texas Ranger Captain Hondo Stone represents the embodiment of Lone Star Justice, risking his life despite facing insurmountable odds against power and influence. With unwavering dedication and the support of allies like Kid Carter and Jess LeBeau, Hondo fights an ongoing war of attrition against the Jenkins Faction. As the conflict intensifies, the lives of many intersect, and love blooms unexpectedly in a whirlwind of anarchy. The novel is preceded by books one and two, Old San Antone: Dawn of the Legend and Gunfighter's Requiem.

Lone Star Justice is another smack out of the park for 2-Bru Krew, which isn't surprising since the other books in the series are excellent, but, given the length of each, one would imagine that they might have already given away the whole shop with regard to new plot ideas. Hold your horses on that one; this is not the case here. Hondo Stone continues to take on the corrupt and the criminal in an era when lawlessness was simply a way of life and every single scene he is in is an absolute delight. There are some genuinely tender moments that offset the adventure and bring balance to the deadly pursuits of, primarily, Stone and Carter. There is one scene where Carter very sweetly approaches the bookish but very imaginative and hopeful Rachel to ask, “Princess Rachel, will you do me the honor of favoring me with your fair hand for this dance, m’lady?” Of course, it's the tension that wins the day and the storyline, and 2-Bru Krew delivers it in spades over and over again. Very highly recommended.
