Sinossi

WINTERS' WAR:
Being an Account from the Lost Papers of The Winters Family Ranch

For eight years the Winters family has worked hard to live down the nightmare of a bloody range war. Theirs is now a promising ranch on hard-won land in Wyoming's rugged Rockies. But on the eve of the season's first snowstorm a stranger slips in, ripping open old wounds, and devolving their lives into a brutal struggle for survival. 

Niall Winters returns from selling his fall herd to find his ranch a burned ruin, his Uncle Drift dead, his wife missing, and the blizzard covering any clues with a whole lot of snow. He heads into the raging maw of the storm determined to confront this demon from his past and salvage the remains of their shattered lives -- or die trying. But he has no idea of the horrors that await him.

5.0 su 5 stelle Fine Hardboiled Revenge Western 6 settembre 2012
Di James Reasoner - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
My friend Matt Mayo has started re-issuing some of his early books under his own Gritty Press imprint, and in the case of WINTERS' WAR that name is certainly appropriate. This is a indeed a gritty book, a fine hardboiled revenge Western.

After a prologue reminiscent of Edgar Rice Burroughs in which the author supposedly finds the manuscript that tells this tale in an old trunk on an abandoned ranch in Wyoming, Mayo launches into the story of pioneer cattleman Niall Winters and his wife Jenna. Several years earlier, Niall was forced to fight a range war to keep an interloper from stealing his land, a conflict that people in the area sometimes refer to as Winters' War. That's not the only war Niall has to fight, though, as a spree of murder and kidnapping that has its roots in the earlier troubles breaks out. Complicating things even more is that fact that the first snowstorm of the season is roaring down on Wyoming, and it promises to be an unusually bad one.

Mayo's smooth prose keeps things moving along at a fast pace, and the plot twists and turns in a series of well-written action scenes so that the reader can never be sure who will survive and who won't. The sympathetic characters are appropriately likable and the villains suitably despicable.

WINTERS' WAR is a fine traditional Western that's well worth reading, and I'm glad it's available again in both e-book and trade paperback editions. If you're a Western fan, you need to check it out.
5.0 su 5 stelle Self-Relainace, Overcoming Adversity & A Story Well Told 29 dicembre 2010
Di Jeremy LC Jones - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
Matthew P. Mayo has a keen eye for the absurd. His Westerns are steeped in authenticity and boiled in action, but it is Mayo's skewed vision of the world that lingers long after the final page. He shows us the mythic West with the sharp, clear eye of a realist looking through rippled glass.

Mayo is the author of the novels WINETRS" WAR, WRONG TOWN, and HOT LEAD, COLD HEART, and the editor of WHERE LEGENDS RIDE: NEW TALES OF THE OLD WEST. At his finest, Mayo captures the surreal and very human quality of everyday life in the 19th century west. His protagonists meet whatever comes their way with nonchalance; they struggle in a world of misperceptions and uncertain realities, come what may. Time and again they must sort out the mythic from the mundane, the weak from the strong, the bizarre from the necessary. Yet, even deep within the most tangled cases of mistaken identity and the darkest of back alley nights, Mayo is always in control of his craft.

Mayo writes evocative prose, gritty characters, and action-packed scenes. Themes, as he has mentioned in interviews, "of self-reliance, overcoming adversity, [and] the satisfaction felt when a tough job is well in hand" run smoothly beneath the characters and the action.

If you enjoy authors like Jack London, Mickey Spillane, Jim Thompson, Loren D. Estleman, Robert J. Randisi, James Reasoner, Larry D. Sweazy, Peter Brandvold, and Johnny D. Boggs, then you will find a kindred spirit in Matthew P. Mayo--a kindred spirit who is nonetheless very much an original voice in the landscape of Western literature.

5.0 su 5 stelle Winter's War 15 agosto 2012
Di Vicki L. Johnson-steger - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Winter's War my first Matt Mayo book. Future Westerns will have a hard time living up to it. While spending 17 hours in a hospital recently, reading that story was a great diversion. The descriptions of his characters along with the setting draws you right in,holds your attention and leaves you wanting to pick the next installment. Which unfortunatley is not yet out. His women characters aren't hysterically screaming hiding behind their men but strong and self-reliant. If you like a good Louis LaAmour tale then I recommend you get ahold of one of Mr. Mayo's stories. You won't be disappointed.

I'm not a frequent reader of Westerns, really, so when I get the urge to read one I'm more and more likely just to reach for a Matt Mayo book. The pacing is always excellent, the characters believable, and the stories a great escape into the archetypal days of old. As a winter guy, I particularly enjoyed the events of this novel taking place in the middle of a snowstorm. I'm not saying there aren't other quality Western writers out there, I'm just saying that Mayo is certainly among them.
