Ed here: James and Livia have excelled in every genre they've worked in. This is one of my favorites because in addition to a fine twisty storyline there's a fascinating look at railroad towns--how they suddenly appeared with the march of railroads and how they were soon bursting with people good and bad. Real bad. Peckinpah could have made a hell of a good movie out WIND RIVER. This is part of an excellent series.
In a couple of weeks Thorndike will be publishing a large print edition of WIND RIVER, the first book in the Western series that Livia and I wrote back in the Nineties. We just got our author copies, and it's a beautiful book. We have e-book editions of the entire series available, but this is the first print edition since the original paperbacks many years ago, and you can pre-order it now from Amazon.
