Revenger #1: A Bullet for Sartain - Clifton Drago (Peter Brandvold)

A BULLET FOR SARTAIN is the first book in a new Adult Western series from Clifton Drago, who in this case is really none other than Mean Pete Brandvold his own self. Mike Sartain, a tough, fast on the draw Cajun from Louisiana, is a freelance gunfighter who only hires out to people seeking justified revenge on those who have done them wrong. This desire to settle the scores for people who are unable to do so themselves springs from tragic events in Sartain's own past.

In this first novel, however, the plot involves Sartain seeking personal revenge on whoever murdered a friend of his instead of hiring out to someone else. The trail eventually leads him south of the border to a hacienda filled with gunmen whose only goal in life is to see Mike Sartain dead.

As we've come to expect from Brandvold's work, A BULLET FOR SARTAIN features compelling characters, vividly realized settings, and action, action, and more action. Brandvold has written for a couple of the leading Adult Western series, and this one is definitely in that genre with several beautiful women getting tangled up in Sartain's life. The pace never slows down for long, and this novel is great fun from start to finish. Highly recommended, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
