Review of Long Shadows by Terry James

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.
