Long Shadows praised by black horse vertans
Joanne Walpole's (AKA TERRY JAMES) debut western, Long Shadows, available now, has been praised by respected western scribe Jack Giles AKA Ray Foster. In a posting to the Black Horse internet forum Ray said:
"Well - what can I say about this new BHW writer? Was it worth the wait?
Yes - it was.
This book has some well drawn characters in the shape of lawman Jake Rudd, Ros West, a rancher's daughter and one time blackjack dealer and the land hungry Emmett Swain.
The plot line has several twists and turns to it - and two of the characters have secrets of their own. There is also an impact of past events that dictate how the events in the present are played out.
In one area of the book the author has introduced the element of memory loss in the character of Ros West - and this is very well handled."
The book can be bought from all the usual retailers and a sample chapter is available HERE
