Ever since childhood I've been a fan of the westerns starring Clint Eastwood. They seemed less clichéd and the central character the mysterious "man with no name" was so much more interesting than some random good guy dressed in white.
So it is with That Damned Coyote Hill. Lowrance brings us an interesting and enigmatic lead character who is cast firmly in three dimensions. He uses strong descriptive writing and the weather perfectly to bring added atmosphere into the story. That Damned Coyote Hill might have been a fairly standard western revenge tale, however, by adding the supernatural element Heath gives the reader so much more value. An inspiring mix of genres that had me hankering for more.
A well spun tale in which the author avoided the usual pitfalls and kept up a great atmosphere throughout. You have a bit of everything action, strong characters, mood, and atmosphere. I look forward to reading more fiction by Heath Lowrance.
