Carnage of Eagles Reviews
Excellent!A truly enjoyable, interesting and exciting tale yesteryear Western lives. The book is well written and edited by the Maestro!
Falcon MacCallister come to Sorrento, Texas, at the behest of an old friend to look into the stranglehold a sheriff, his deputies, and a judge have on the small town. Bullying tactics to collect monies from anyone, merchants, hookers, people dropping in town for a cool drink.Weighted juries, people hanging for whatever they decide is a crime, most of which wouldn't have been hanging offenses.Secretly appointed a deputy U. S. Marshall. Falcon also gets himself appointed to fill out the town Marshal job and begins working on new statutes, which the town council approves, that cut into the judge and sheriff's profits.They don't like that. Falcon gets set up for murder, convicted despite the evidence, and sentenced to hang the next day.When has that ever stopped a MacCallister.
A fast good read of good versus evil in the wilds of Texas back in the day. Falcon MacCallister is a wealthy man who doesn't need to do the things he does, but he feels compelled to do the right thing and come to the aid of people who are in trouble. In the town of Sorrento, Texas, there are bad men in charge of the town. The Sheriff and his deputies are nothing more than bullies who collect exorbitant taxes and run roughshod over the townspeople. They don't get in trouble since they work for the town judge. This judge hangs defendants rather than put them in jail since it costs money to keep them in jail. And not all defendants are necessarily guilty, some are just in the way of the judge and sheriff. Falcon is there to set things right.
Growing up I read Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour. I haven't read a western in years and after reading Carnage of Eagles I know one thing.....where can I get the other 16. This book had me from the first page til the last and I was so disappointed when I was done. Not because the ending was bad, but because I was done. The main character Falcon MacCallister is someone you don't want to mess with and three men in Sorrento, Texas have made that mistake. Even if you don't like westerns I would highly recommend you give this book a try, I guarantee you will want the other 16. I won this from LibraryThing and I am so glad I did.
Falcon is at it again!Falcon has yet another chance to wear the white hat and be a hero. Good yarn and a good read!
