Dead for A Dollar (Firestick#3)


Title:  Dead for A Dollar (Firestick#3)

Author:  William W. Johnstone & J. A Johnstone

Pages:  347

Year:  2019

Publisher:  Pinnacle

My rating:  5 out of 5 stars          

Join me once again in reading the adventures of three former mountain men nicknamed, Moosejaw, Beartooth and Firestick.  These mountain men may be lawmen now and own their own ranch, but the knowledge and skill learned when living up in the Rockies is serving them well in town too. 

In what is third book of the series, we read that Beartooth is accused of murder, and an old friend from their mountain days just happens to ride up.  Readers will enjoy the wildness of the west alive and well in the Johnstone Firestick series.  The first book is titled, Firestick followed by Blood & Bullets, then this novel plus a fourth to be released in April 2019.

Like of my favorite character, Smoke Jensen, these men are another favorite as they fight for life to be lived, justice to be done and still shy of their gals!  While they own a growing horse ranch, they also try to keep the town law abiding in peace; yet, there are times when they still must fight.  They fight bare knuckles, brains or blazing guns; it doesn’t matter for what is right is what drives them.

Each of the ladies is special, unique and vastly different from the others just as these three amigos are different.  But the bond of friendship is more like family and their womenfolk stand up to them and for them when times call for it.  I love the action, adventure and hint of mystery embedded deep within the story and the characters that make reading such a pure joy!

If you love a good western, here are several!  I read this book in less than two days because it was so exciting plus I wanted to see how all the threads of the novel came together.  So, catch up on the three novels thus far the series before the fourth book comes out in just over a month.
