Red River Reunion is a work of fiction in the western, action and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author John Layne. Following the true course of the classic Western novel, we find ourselves in Texas in the year 1877, where lawlessness at the border is rife and ruinous for those trying to make an honest living there. Enter our central protagonists, U.S. Deputy Marshal Luxton Danner and Texas Ranger Wes Payne, who have sworn to try to uphold frontier law and indeed risk their own lives for the sake of others around them. What results is a powerful tale of honor and trying to find justice in a dark world of wild outlaws and outright villains.
Author John Layne evokes the spirit of the classic Western novel in every single page of this lavish and atmospheric masterpiece. The narration is highly nostalgic and shows that Layne has done his research into the origins of the genre. I also found that the language was well explained in context so nothing would ever become confusing for a newcomer to the fold. There’s also plenty of great character development as we get to know Wes and Lux, understanding their passion for their duty and the methods they use to uphold the law against seemingly impossible odds. All of this makes for a comprehensive Western which delivers everything a fan could ever want from this high-action genre. Overall, I would certainly recommend Red River Reunion to fans and newcomers alike.
