Peter Brandvold – Yakima Henry Bk 7 – Bullet for the Half-Breed – Reviewed 7/19/21 – Read 7/9/21
Yakima Henry sort of walked into a job as shotgunner for the Coronado Transport Company located in Red Hill, he just could not figure out why he did that. He had planned to be in a warm area for the winter, not in this god-forsaken place. The company was partly owned by the Romans, father, and daughter. The jehu/driver, Avril Derks, was a grizzled old coot, but he knew his job and could handle a team with ease for his age. They had been rooming with each other since he signed on. The coach often carried payroll for the two big ranches west of Red Hill because the bank rarely kept much money on hand. Derks had told him that the coach had been hit quite a few times in the past few months. This was his third run so he was sitting at high alert just in case.
When they pulled into Diamondback Station to change teams, Yakima, felt the itch start on the back of his neck. Nothing looked wrong but he knew better than to ignore his senses. He kept his Yellowboy in his hand as he climbed down and then opened the door for the passengers to walk around a little while they changed the team. A pretty blonde and her son were on board along with a gambler and two beef contractors. For a moment Yakima was speechless, she reminded him of the woman he had lost, Faith. Just then one of the men called him a breed, telling him that he should be helping the woman off the stage. Inside, he burned with rage, but he held it there. Instead, he reached out and offered his hand, which she took. As she walked off, Derks headed for the cabin. Yakima turned and spotted a shadow move behind the dark square of the unshattered window left of the closed door. There was a faint flash there too. Like the reflection of sunlight off steel!
Join Yakima Henry as things heat up with stage robbers and the pretty blonde lady…
What did I like? Everyone knows by this time that Yakima is one of my favorite lead characters among the many that I follow. He is soft-hearted, tough, handsome, and half Native American. A man to be reckoned with, but a man that knows how to love the world around him, mother nature. His world narrowed down to two things after he lost the love of his life, Faith. His Yellow Boy, a gift from his murdered Chinese friend, and his best friend, Wolf, his prized stallion. Which I covet, boy would I love to own that horse and have it as faithful to me as it is to Yakima.
What will you like? There is nothing like the action that you will find in every one of the Yakima Henry books. Trouble with a capital “T” follows that man where ever he is, and he takes it on with the same gusto. Outlaws, murderers, cheaters, double-crossers, and beautiful women are all part of the storyline. Peter has mastered the art of taking his readers for the ride of their life in every type of situation you can think of. His descriptions and details will open your inner eyes to the event, and you will see as clear as the day has daylight. His characters are meticulously described so that you can watch as they cross the scene and become involved in the action. Every storyline is beautifully written and extremely well-edited for your enjoyment. “Bullet for a Half-Breed” will be available on July 20, 2021.
