1: Redemption, Kansas – James Reasoner: first book in a new series, a welcome series with James’s name on the cover. A young cowboy recovers from a wound caused by his turning a stampeding herd of cattle in a small town where he realizes things are not as they seem. Or should be.
2: The Last Gunfighter: Dead Before Sundown – William W. Johnstone with J. A. Johnstone: the latest in the continuation of one of the late author’s characters. Frank Morgan pursues a killer and thief across western Canada and finds a rebel group with stolen Gatling guns and a horrible plan he must stop.
3: Excavation – James Rollins: Mr. Rollins hadn’t yet achieved bestseller status when the first edition of this came out in mass market paperback in 2000. This is the second of his early novels to come out with a hardcover edition for fans who wanted them. I’m one of those fans. A lost world below the ice of Antarctica.
