      It’s been awhile since I read a book purely for fun so I approached Loren D. Estleman’s “Sudden Country” with eager anticipation. I was not disappointed.

      “Sudden Country” is a short western (182 pages) set in the last decade of the nineteenth century. The main character is David Grayle. The story deals with attempts of


      David and his traveling partners, a mixed group featuring ex-Confederate bushwackers, a school teacher, a preacher, and a writer of half-dime westerns, to recover a treasure stolen and hidden by William Quantrell.

      On the trail David encounters robbers (from his own traveling party), Indians, both hostile and peaceful, and an elderly woman called Crazy Alice who ...


      • was old when Sioux Chief Red Cloud was young. Throughout the book David faces the dangers and grows as a person who would have made his father proud. That is if David had any idea who his father was. David’s mother ran a boarding house that sometimes carried fringe benefits.

        “Sudden Country” is a fun

        romping western with no particular redeeming values except for being a good, well-written book that is great fun to read. recommend it for either a quick, easy read in the park during the summer or before a cozy fire with a cup of tea when weather cools. I give the book a good solid B+ or 88%.
