I am very partial to stories of the Wild West and this title intrigued me so when I was offered the chance to read it I did not hesitate. I was not disappointed.
The story takes place in and around two brothels of a western town frequented by cowboys. The plot is straight forward. A young man comes to town carrying a saddle, falls fowl of a local cowboy leader called Billy Lassiter and vows to protect a saloon girl that Lassiter has been abusing. The story is very readable and the characters, with the exception of Lassiter and his gang, are sympathetic.
I am not sure that the attitudes of the characters are authentic to the times but they are certainly believable. I found the book to be an easy and enjoyable read. I recommend it to anyone who appreciates books of this genre
