THE RECKONING: A Jess Williams Western

Product Description

Don't let the prologue of this book fool you; this is a western novel.

The Reckoning is the first in the series of Jess Williams western novels written by Robert J. Thomas. Jess Williams is an ordinary young boy with a loving family growing up in Black Creek, Kansas. That all changes when he comes home and finds his entire family brutally murdered.

Forced to become a man overnight, he vows to avenge his family's savage deaths. He begins to practice with his Pa's Colt .45 and then a stroke of destiny arrives when he discovers a new pistol and holster that mysteriously appears. Jess practices with it relentlessly until he becomes so quick that he is unbeatable on the draw.

He leaves home transformed from a boy to a highly skilled shootist with no reason to live except to hunt down and kill each of the three men responsible for the murders of his family. As he begins his journey, he does so with a pistol and holster that no one has ever seen before--and won't again for almost one-hundred years.

I enjoyed this story about a young boy seeking revenge for the murder of his family. I had a problem with the young inexperienced boy becoming so mature, smart, cunning and very comfortable with killing men in such a short time. The boy was only 16 years old but the authors made me fell as if the boy was a grown, well rounded and very experienced man. I enjoyed the book over all....

Love reading these western stories..My dear old Dad always felt he should have been born during this time electronics ( no electricity), folks just living by their own wits..Does make you think how our live have changed so much..

Confusing, June 17, 2014
This story is confusing. I am not sure whether it is a SciFi or a Western. A special pistol magically moves through space and time to arrive at just the right time for this boy to learn how to shoot. Then at the end the origin of the Gun is mentioned again. It is almost like the story was written, needed something more then this special gun was created and added.
The western story was wonderful, but the magical gun was a bust. Or, the magical gun needs to be explained better. When I say explained I mean the reason that the gun moved through time and space. Who did it and why.

Good over evil, June 15, 2014
With our world in the present turmoil we see, I always want to see evil overcome by the good that is still present in some of us. More killing than I like.

A good Read, June 12, 2014
Have always enjoined Westerns. familiar storyline. Well written. the writer would have made the novel more interesting to me if he had extended the story line.

Clint Eastwood should make this a movie, June 9, 2014
This is how you want life to be. When bad people do bad things to good people, good people get even. Old west justice at its most basic form.
