A Ranger Called Solitary
by Barry Cord
Center Point. Large Print Edition. 2018,191 Pages. Adult Western
Marshal Tom Benton summoned a Ranger called Solitary Jackson to come to Muleshoe Country because the Baron and his gang had been bringing nothing but fear and death to the town. When Jim Jackson showed up, he was surprised to find that he was not welcome in the town and was under attack himself by not the Baron, but the Marshal himself along with the townsfolk. Jackson now had another mission on his hands: not only did he need to help this town more than ever from the Baron but he also needed to solve the mystery of why he was under attack by good people.
I don't normally read Westerns, but this was a very good book. It kept me on my toes and I never figured out who the real villain of the story was until the end of the book. Not only was this a western, but it is also a mystery. This book had a great story line and it was fun to play detective while reading it.
