The Long Shooters
By Daniel C. Chamberlain
Reviewed by Matthew Pizzolato
The aggrieved rancher, Samuel Roark, is in the midst of several personal tragedies and hires renowned manhunter, Matthew Shaw, to track down his son's killer. In the midst of his grieving, Roark begins to neglect his beautiful wife, Sarah, and the hunter Shaw promptly falls in love with her. This story is full of intrigue and suspense as Shaw tracks the killer while looking over his shoulder.
The authenticity and attention to detail is superb. Chamberlain is a former police officer and he knows his firearms as well as the damage they do to the human body.
The story is every bit a Western but there are elements of other genres mixed in for good measure. It contains elements of romance, suspense and mystery all packaged into one excellent story. This a book you will enjoy even if you've never read a Western before. Pick up a copy as soon as you can.
