Book Review – The Grey Man – Sunset

Jim Curtis returns to his Grey Man series.  Sunset is a wonderfully written capstone to a wonderful series of stories.

Whoever said retirement was quiet never met John Cronin…

The old man may have retired for the final time from the Sheriff’s office, but there are still cows to run, court cases to testify at, and consultation calls to tap decades of experience. And that’s not even counting the cold cases he’s still trying to solve…

With his granddaughter Jesse running the gun store and managing the ranch books, and her husband leaning how to fill Cronin’s shoes on investigations and arrests, John is keeping busy training the next generation, while settling a few old scores!

Curtis continues the story of John Cronin and his family.  Sunset shows us how the torch is passed to the next generation, but we also learn more about Cronin and his past.

By now, we know this world, so the author is able to concentrate on the story and the characters who live in it.  The story is well paced and brings many threads in the Grey Man stories to full completion.  There is action to be had here, but Sunset is more of a story about people and how they live and enjoy life.

If you’re looking for a good book to curl up with for an evening, Sunset is for you.
