Death Rides Alone (Luke Jensen Bounty Hunter #5)

Title:  Death Rides Alone (Luke Jensen Bounty Hunter #5)
Author:  William W. Johnstone & J. A. Johnstone
Pages:  336
Year:  2016
Publisher:  Pinnacle
My rating is 5 stars.
Luke Jenson rides into Wyoming looking for a man who is wanted in Montana, and that is where the adventure begins to take off!  Before Luke even locates his man, he becomes entangled with the town’s braggart that leads to lead flying in all directions!  From then on, the lead not only keeps flying but Luke’s life seems to be in danger!  Luke, with his wanted man in tow, heads for Montana but is the man really as guilty of the crime of which he has been accused?
Through the many miles Luke hears parts of Tyler’s tale and in time, Luke realizes it has a ring of truth.  In addition to the beautiful scenery described in the book, there seems to be a mystery surrounding the murder that Tyler is accused of in a town located in Montana.  I really enjoyed reading Luke and Tyler’s adventures and constant run-in with danger as well as a possible love interest for Tyler, if he is proved innocent.
 I enjoy these westerns so much I hate for the ending to come in each book, but there are many great stories that I have yet to enjoy.  So look for more western reviews coming in the near future from the pen of the Johnstone family!

In November of this year is the time when readers can sign up for the Johnstone book club on their website, so be watching!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
