Stuart Brannon's Final Shot

One of my favorite things I miss the most are the old time western radio programs. I know you can sometimes find them on Sirius radio now and on the Internet, but that's exactly what I was thinking as I was reading, Stuart Brannon's Final Shot by Stephen Bly.

Although only 7,000 words remained in the original manuscript by Stephen Bly just before his death, his family members got together and completed the final book in the Stuart Brannon's series. This book is definitely action packed adventure from the beginning pages as Stuart Brannon is involved in the prevention of a train robbery. After he convinces the criminal to turn himself in to the local authorities, he finds himself the center of attention by some of the passengers on a train, namely a young boy who idolizes the person he believes him to be. While correcting the young man on all the rumors he believes as truth, he faces a challenge of another kind.

Brannon receives word from a close friend Lady Harriet Fletcher who asks him to participate in a gold tournament event in conjunction with the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition. However Brannon just wants to return home to retire on his ranch in Arizona. When he receives another invitation from the President of the United States asking for his involvement in the disappearance of Tom Wiseman, a U.S. Marshall, he can't ignore this one. Tom is too close of a friend and has aided him in many personal and legal problems in the past, and also the many times Tom had stood with Brannon against the lawbreakers when no one else would.

I received Stuart Brannon's Final Shot compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and really liked the story-telling behind this novel. Like I described it above, to me, it read like the old time western radio programs with fast-paced action on every page, from chandelier swinging ladies to out of control horses in a small town. This one is geared to those that love that Old-Time Western Fiction much like Louis L'Amour! I rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and commend his family members for all the time involved to put this final novel together!
