The Horse Killer, by Joe Kilgore, is a good western adventure novel told in classic western style, but with an unusual twist. Texas Ranger, Raven Comstock, on the hunt for wayward criminals, comes across an abandoned farm where he finds the carcass of a brutally beaten horse. The crime sparks an investigative flame which then leads him to more such killings. As Raven chases down the perpetrator, there are adventures and altercations around every corner and sage brush. One senses what life was like on the open ranges of the American southwest, where rattlers and wild boars could end one’s existence in minutes. This is a bizarre tale, one that challenges the reader to figure out who is behind the killings and why; and rest assured, it is not what you think. No
