Review of ‘Riders on the Wind’

Posted on

Riders on the Wind by Victor H. Royer is part western, part mystery. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

A mysterious rider, who calls himself John Smith, but is known to some as the Ghost, is ambushed on the trail by two gunmen. Smith prevails, but before the gunmen die he learns from them that they’ve been hired by a fancy eastern dude to kill him. The dude can be found in the town of Apache Trail. There, Smith learns of a conspiracy against him that leads to the railroad consortium that is building nearby, but is unable to learn why anyone would want him dead.

At the same time this story unfolds, readers are introduced to the story of an unknown man and the mystery of Devil Canyon.

An interesting combination of pure western action and strange mystery, I found it an intriguing read. A few annoying typos and overly-long paragraphs did interrupt the flow of action in places, but it was nonetheless an entertaining read.

I give it three stars.

    Good tips, all of them. In my ongoing efforts to market without paying a king’s ransom, I do most. But #7 seems to be where I fall down. Specifically: repeating keywords in the title, body, first paragraph. That sounds simple enough. I’m going to try it.
