Who Abducted The U.S. Deputy Marshal's Granddaughter? by Raymond Cook is an interesting novel with a strong appeal for fans of Western novels. U.S. Deputy Marshall Donald Spencer had been noted for his work alongside sheriffs in the Colorado Territory in fighting crime. But when his partner Chris Ballard gets killed, he is plunged into a series of actions that leads him from one complicated situation to the next. First he kills the man who killed his partner, and then he is lured into a dangerous game by a gang, whose boss Donald has taken prisoner. The gang retaliates by abducting the one person Donald loves most, his granddaughter Katelyn, and will only release her in exchange for their boss. Follow Donald's adventure as he tries to outwit the bad guys and rescue his beloved granddaughter.
While there are a few gaps in the narrative that don’t disrupt the reading experience, Raymond Cook succeeds in taking readers on an exhilarating ride with characters they will want to stick around with. The setting in Denver in 1898 is wonderfully done and readers will be amazed at the reflection of time and place in the narrative. The characters are well developed, but readers will want to follow the protagonist, Donald Spencer, a rough guy with a good heart. The writing is good and the author writes focused scenes and uses a descriptive style of writing that conjures up vivid images in the reader’s mind. Who Abducted The U.S. Deputy Marshal's Granddaughter? is an interesting read. Although the beginning is slow, the story grows in speed and intensity as it moves forward.
