Some authors just have a knack for spinning an enjoyable tale and talented Author Robert Vaughan fits the bill. This is the second western novel that I have read and reviewed penned by him and it definitely makes me want to read more of his works. I like his down-to-earth style and descriptive ability when it comes to relating a story. I was able to easily visualize any scene he described. I find this technique to be a very enjoyable reading treat. Not all authors are as gifted in this area. At times, I've skimmed over such passages but I did not do so in "The Lawmen" as they added so much to the storyline.
The setting....Risco, Texas in the late 1800's. Every couple of years, arch political enemies...John Carmack and Charley Dawson, alternate in the role of being Sheriff in this small western town. Their children, Greg Dawson and Clemmie Carmack, manage to fall madly in love and secretly marry. Right after the wedding ceremony and without the approval of their feuding fathers, they quickly disappear to start a new life of their own They eventually give birth to a lovely daughter called Lucy, who...almost twenty years later, marries Phil Goodnight and moves to a small Texas town by the name of Blodgett.
Angus Pugh, has a history with the two Sheriffs from Risco. Recently released from prison after twenty years of incarceration, along with his gang of criminal, he decides to rob the bank in Blodgett. Phil Goodnight is the new Bank Manager and before he even gets to start his first day on the job, the fun begins...
Lucy then calls upon her two aging grandfathers to make their peace and help her prove her husband's innocence. Can they rise above their feuding? Both in their sixties now, do they have what it takes to ride into the criminal town of Salcedo and rescue her husband? It sure is worth the read to find out. Very enjoyable novel!

Up The "Down" Ladder: Simple Ideas to Overcome Depression
But with Robert Vaughn's well-written, untypical "THE LAWMEN," I was very pleasantly surprised. The two main protagonists are delightful: a couple of old, stubborn, retired sheriffs who, after decades of being political rivals, band together to try and find/save a kidnapped young man. Who is he? Why should these cantankerous fellows care? Well, he happens to be the grandson of one of the sheriffs and coincidentally, has recently married the granddaughter of the other lawman. And no, this highly educated young man is neither ripped nor muscle-bound!
I found the two 'ol coots' fresh, funny banter along with the young husband's clever mockery of a kangaroo court priceless and had me chuckling through most of the story, as I kept turning those pages to find out how it was all going to end. Add to that, a fine shoot 'em up scene and a bank heist late at night and you end up with great entertainment in this delightful western.

The plot reflects the traditional western adventures and topics in a very realistic way - Mr Vaughan has clearly done his homework and delivered a well crafted and detailed historical novel.
Dialogues are probably the best aspect of the whole book, they are really superb.
Overall, it's an excellent book I'd definitely recommend.
