Hard Trail to Socorro
(Bodie Kendrick - Bounty Hunter)
By Wayne D. Dundee
Reviewed by Matthew Pizzolato
Kendrick decides to advert the Apache trouble by travelling along the Jornada del Muerto—the Journey of the Dead. Along the way, Kendrick begins to develop feelings for Veronica and discovers that trouble of her own is following them. All of this while holding on to a prisoner who attempts escape at every turn.
Dundee's characterization is excellent and he has woven a masterful tale. My favorite aspect of this novel is that is a "Book 1" in a series. Yet, this is not a story that will leave you waiting for the next book to receive resolution. It is a stand alone novel that comes to a satisfying conclusion. Kendrick quickly became one of my favorite fictional characters and I enjoyed this novel so much that I'm looking forward to riding the trails with Bodie Kendrick - Bounty Hunter in the next adventure.
