MY house...in the middle of the street...~ Hannah
Through split between two different time spans, this book reads easily, enabling the reader to slip back in time to the last days of the lawless west, where the fictional character of Zachary Trelawney mingles with such notables as Dallas Stoudenmire, John Wesley Hardin and Teddy Roosevelt, yet just as easily brings you back to the present day Texas Rangers as they fight their never ending battle against drugs. A classic adult western/crime novel. A must read........
