New Book From Peter Grant

Peter Grant, proprietor of the Bayou Renaissance Man blog, has brought out the second book in his Ames Archives western series, titled Rocky Mountain Retribution.  The new book is the sequel to last year’s Brings the Lightning, and it is an excellent continuation of the story.

In the post-Civil War West, the railroads are expanding, the big money men are moving in, and the politicians they are buying make it difficult for a man to stand alone on his own. So, Walt Ames moves his wife, his home and his business from Denver to Pueblo. The railroads are bringing new opportunities to Colorado Territory, and he’s going to take full advantage of them.

Rocky Mountain Retribution is an excellent yarn that takes Walter Ames all over the American west, through all kinds of conditions, and follows his fight against a new enemy.  It’s a page turner, so don’t be surprised if you don’t finish it in one sitting.  If you haven’t read Brings the Lightning yet, it will definitely bring the second book into focus, but this one could also be enjoyable as a stand-alone novel.

If you like Louis L’Amour or Zane Grey, you’ll enjoy these.  Grant is one of the best story tellers I know, and I’ve enjoyed his westerns more than anything else he’s written.  I definitely recommend Rocky Mountain Retribution to anyone who enjoys adventure, honor, and grit.

    My father and I didn’t share an interest in science fiction, but we both read as many Louis L’Amour novels as we could get our hands on.
    Your post reminded me to push the button and get the novel onto my kindle.
