"19th Century family saga - real page-turner…"
This is a real epic of a book and what a fantastic read it is too. A family saga covering several generations primarily in the 19th century, this skims over some events whilst the other more spectacular events are described in great detail. The events take place in the US and in Mexico, with quite a bit taking place in the border regions. Many of the Wolfe family operated outside of the law an it is the adventures that they get involved in that make it such a thrilling read. The edition of the book I read published by No Exit Press ISBN 9781843445555 shows a different cover to that shown above. It has three or four times as many words per page as you would normally expect of a paperback which makes it somewhat daunting in the early stages, but the reader is soon sucked in to the story (or stories) and makes it a hard book to put down. If you are of a nervous disposition you may find some of the violence offputting, but I think it just adds to the spectacle. This is apparently the first in what is to be a trilogy - I can't wait for the next volume. Great stuff!
