While researching for a book to read last month, I stumbled across a review of Hunter's Pale Horse Coming, which eluded to the use of Infamous lawmen and other shootists as thinly veiled characters in the book, I was intrigued. After a little more reading and discovered the novels main protagonist was the father of Bob Lee Swagger, and this was novel #2 in the series, I decided I would start with Hot Springs, the first novel in the Earl Swagger series.
I found Hot Springs to a very enjoyable read. Again Hunter uses real places, events, and people as inspiration which makes the history nerd in me very happy indeed! So if you are both a history buff and enjoy a good "hardboiled" tale, then you may find this book as fun as I did.
I picked up Pale Horse Coming yesterday, I was already about 80 to 90 pages in when I forced myself to put it down and go to sleep.
