Hell or High Water by Terry Grosz has a number of characteristics that many fans of traditional westerns might enjoy:
- The characters are familiar – brothers who work together to fight injustice in a lawless land.
- The “bad guys” are very bad.
- The story has lots and lots of action.
- Grosz has a unique way of telling the story, as if he wants to make sure the reader will not be lost or confused.
In subsequent adventures (each chapter almost reads as a stand-alone story) the brothers learn and grow as they become “hunters of men” and bring to justice all manner of low-lives who steal, kill, rape and mutilate.
The adventures of the Dodson boys come full circle in he last chapter I which they again confront Col. Jackson who has escaped from prison and has gathered together an even larger group of outlaws. The bad guys are brought in once again, though this time at a cost.
This book is also about twice as long as the more typical traditional western, which will provide those who enjoy this type of “hell or high water” adventure a lot of reading for their money!
