Kick the sand over that campfire, drop your rifle in the boot, and swing aboard your horse to join tough as nails Will Fain to bring law and order to wild West Texas. Will Fain became estranged from the last of his family when he rode for the Union in the Civil War as aide to General Grant himself. Of late, he's been on the President's secret service team mostly rousting out counterfeit money. Will is restless and goes to Grant with his decision to quit and head west to raise horses. Grant laughingly tells him that he'll soon be bored with that and has a better idea for Will's brand of talent. And, boy was he right. It was a little slow at first as Will methodically got outfitted for his task, but it was also interesting to follow him to a horse farms, arms factories, and an inventor's shop so that later when Will has those up to date advantages, it didn't just come out of the blue. Will encounters trouble even before beginning his work, but he's cunning and calculating so the bad guys rarely get the drop on him. He settles in a particularly lawless region near Fort Concho and Santa Angelo. There we get a bit of romance for him and the start of his work and the start of new life on the frontier. I did find it a little hard to believe that a guy who had spent his entire life in the east took to western life so easily, but he was from the Tennessee hills and already had a rep as fast and accurate with a gun before he went on to fight in the war and work in the secret service protecting the president and performing other federal policing actions. I guess it wasn't too far off that he could settle in quickly. It was a great blend of action, historical backdrop, and the development of a romance with Viriginia a widowed pioneer woman and circle of regular characters for the ongoing series. Will chooses a retired Buffalo Soldier as his first deputy and ranch hand and I loved getting to know Isum and his family too. There is a smidge of humor in how Will tackles the lazy local town sheriff and the grumpy US Marshall in San Antonio. But, the rest is great gunfighter action and frontier life. AT Chandler was amazing. He was the perfect fit for the story and Will's voice. He did great at the surrounding cast, too, whether other races, genders, ages, and western twang. He caught the spirit of this story so well. I really hope he is narrating the rest of the series. All in all, it was a great outing and I will definitely be back for the rest of the series. Those who love western fiction can give this a go with my blessing. My thanks to Tantor Audio for the opportunity to listen to this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lane will continue writing about Will Fain, U.S. Marshal, also close friend to President Ulysses S. Grant who appointed him for life as U.S. Marshal which also gave him Carte Blanche over the thirty-seven states and Territories which were considered the United States..Will Fain reminds me of Jess Williams Series another great character who is fair, respectful. Treats people as human beings regardless of their ethnicity..very low amounts of cussing, just a good reading western adventure..oh yes, he loves horses and armaments which he uses without hesitation for protection in his line of duty...A MAN TO RIDE THE RIVER WITH..

    The end west... ...Where men were men and women were women, and nobody was confused as to how that worked. I am truly enjoying the works by R. O. Lane. He writes an easy story that keeps you entertained, isn't boring, and generally has a love story woven in the overarching plots of the series. Western are not necessarily everyone 's cup of tea, but I think Mr. Lane's books are worth a look see.

    He will take you out! Don't get in the way of Marshall Will Fain. Don't do anything to his family. Do what you need to do but stay away from the Marshall. He's a good man that won't put up with anything bad. Great read and I'm ready for the next one. He will take you out! Don't get in the way of Marshall Will Fain. Don't do anything to his family.

    4 Stars First book of the series. Lots of the first few chapters consisted of Will buying horses, guns ammo and getting ready for his move to West Texas. Last part of the book was better. I've already purchased the 2nd book. 4 Stars First book of the series. Lots of the first few chapters consisted of Will buying horses, guns ammo and getting ready for his move to West Texas.

    Outlaws don’t win! Marshals aren’t always well prepared or great with a gun. Fain is and he has a heart for people down on their luck or mistreated and has the means to help. The storyline keeps you turning pages.

    Great western Another great western from R.O. Lane. The heroes are tough but kind. The villains are as mean as snakes and the women beautiful. The plot moves like a stampede of frightened horses. This guy can write.
