Set in Colorado, this debut novel has a nicely gathering pace.

Its central character, Clyde Barr, is a man on a mission. After an abruptly terminated plea for help from his elder sister Jen, he makes his way from Utah to Colorado.

Barr is former military and has been a soldier of fortune, safari guide and more latterly in prison; but has plenty of contacts, who give him a lead as to who is holding his sister and where they might be. Like a somewhat tarnished and battered knight in shining armour, he’s going to try and get her back safely regardless of what stands in his way.

Along the way he runs into Allie, a barkeep in the employ of the chief suspect’s brother, Chopo; a contact from his days in Mexico and Zeke (another Mexico connection).

With a plot involving breaking into a government facility to steal special chemicals, an antagonist who will stop at nothing to get what he needs, the FBI, betrayal, crystal methamphetamine all coupled to a great backdrop; the story unfolds with purposeful strides.

There’s a good spoonful of Jack Reacher about Clyde Barr, but I’m sure that there’s also a generous helping of Walt Longmire too.

The author clearly knows his guns and the state of Colorado and is no shrinking violet when it comes to piling on the action.
