Description

Texas Ranger Andy Pickard is assigned what appears to be a routine duty. Donley Bannister, a West Texas horse trader, has killed a thug named Cletus Slocum, who stole one of Bannister’s horses. Ranger Pickard is ordered to find and arrest Bannister and bring him to trial.

The Bannister case turns out to be anything but routine. Pickard picks up Bannister’s trail and finds him holed up with some cohorts who wound and vow to kill the young Ranger. Ironically, Bannister saves Pickard’s life by fending off the would-be killers and taking Andy to a cow camp where his injury can be treated. When he is able to ride, Andy locates and trails Geneva Bannister, Donley’s young wife, hoping she will lead him to the wanted man. The trail takes unexpected turns and detours: Near Fort Concho Andy’s mission is interrupted by an ugly racial incident in which a black soldier is killed; Bannister is shot by outlaw Curly Tadlock and left for dead; and Tadlock brutally assaults Geneva.

Andy Pickard, newly married, still unsure of himself and his choice of Rangering as a career, must unravel this tangled series of events and accomplish his mission of bringing an accused killer to justice.

display_descriptionVeteran Kelton once again shows why he is considered to be one of the giants of the western genre. Andy Pickard, a young Texas Ranger, is assigned the job of bringing in Donley Bannister, a horse trader accused of murder. He tracks Bannister down pretty quickly, but he is thrown for a loop when Bannister, instead of turning tail and running when Andy is jumped by some thugs, actually saves Andy’s life (and then disappears again). What follows is a story told mostly in shades somewhere between black and white. Is Bannister friend or foe? A villain or a good man who did one bad thing? Where does Andy’s duty end and his compassion begin? Written with Kelton’s usual eye for character and place, the novel uses the formulas associated with typical westerns to tell a moving story of honor and courage. David Pitt --
