Noteworthy Reads: SONGBIRD (A Rancho Diablo Novel) by Colby Jackson

The popular Rancho Diablo books comprise one of the freshest, most consistently entertaining Western series being done today. Not surprising, really, considering that the writing chores are handled round-robin style by three highly skilled, always dependable veterans: James Reasoner, Bill Crider, and Mel Odom, each taking turns as author Colby Jackson.

This time around, it's Bill Crider behind the byline and he spins another winner, taking already-established elements of the series and building on them with an imaginative, entertaining tale filled with humor, menace, lots of colorful characters, and plenty of action.

SONGBIRD is a top-notch Western and an excellent addition to an already outstanding series. Don't miss this, or any of the other Rancho Diablo titles—you'll be cheating yourself if you do.
