Best Talon & Chantry Books
Borden Chantry: This is the first book in the Talon & amp Chantry series. The storyline is set during the period when the Sacketts, Tyrel & Tell, and Orrin, lived and ranched in Mora, New Mexico. The boys discovered a woman that helped cure some miners in the area with smallpox is ailing and in need of medical attention. One of them was a Sackett, so the boys asked Joe Sackett to lend the sick woman some money so that she can relocate to another town with a better climate. In a twist of events, the local Marshall discovers that Joe is killed and he must investigate the murder. Before long, the Marshall finds a string of multiple murders all connected to Mora.
As with most small town cops, they never manage to unearth multiple murder cases, let alone a single one. The Marshall was only twenty-four years old. Back in the day, life in the west countryside made men mature quickly. The author did not come out clear on the significance of Joe’s death or who he was, other than getting help for his small pox. The storyline is great, detailing life in a relatively small town, making the characters sound real. Lots of empty buildings, arroyos, and structure rooftops were used to dry gorge dead bodies. This whole ordeal put Borden’s life at stake. It is evident that someone wants him dead too. The killer is too swift and closing in on his victims faster than they can breathe. It is a fast, quick read. An exceptional plot packed with intrigue and mystery. An unknown killer sprawling in the small town and the sheriff had to figure out why, before he made any moves to catch the reckless murderer.
The Flair Blow Winds: The Flair Blow Winds, is the second installment in the Loius La’mour book series. In this installment, we meet once again with Tatton Chantry, a boy whose father was killed by the British while his home was burned to the ground. Tatton in turn left to Ireland, so as to make fortune and regain land as well, which was rightfully his. Taught along the way on how to use firearms, Tatton eventually arrived in London, a tad wiser and an exceedingly dangerous man.
