Real slow week.

1: Hangrope Law – Colby Jackson: the second book in the Rancho Diablo series about Sam Blaylock’s efforts to carve a ranch out of a sulfur poisoned land and the people who want him stopped before he succeeds. Colby Jackson is James Reasoner this time around.

2; Passage To Samoa – Day Keene: a fifties crime novel by one of the noted authors of the era. My copy is not the original Gold Medal edition, but a later release.
