Review: Bloody Season

User Review  - Jeff Minar - Goodreads

Outstanding fiction that is really well-researched. I feel as if Estleman must have been there in Tombstone and environs at that time to tell the tale he has told. I recommend it to everyone, even if you are not a fan of Westerns. Read full review
