Sinossi

Roamer: One man's quest to lose himself in the West.

First in the gritty, all-action Western series by Spur Award-nominated author Matthew P. Mayo, featuring Roamer, the loner with a face everyone fears.
Roamer is having a bad day--he is savaged by a grizzly, robbed by bandits, and attacked by wolves. So by the time he makes it to the little Rocky Mountain town of Tall Pine all he wants is a cup of coffee, a hot meal, and a soft bed. The sheriff jails him for murder instead. A seething mob marks Roamer's homely face as guilty and seeks twisted justice with his blood. Can he stop the townsfolk from destroying themselves or will they kill him first? It's a brutal race against time for Roamer as the mob rips apart its little town, leaving innocent people dead and the wrong people in charge. Welcome to Wrong Town.

5.0 su 5 stelle Terrific Western! 15 aprile 2012
Di Peter Brandvold, Western Writer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Matt Mayo is a relative newcomer to the western genre, and he's kicking butt and taking names.

I loved ROAMER: WRONG TOWN, and can't wait for the next one in the series. This is fiction writing at it's best, and some of the best writing you'll find in the western field. If you're a fan of well-written westerns, you won't regret adding this one to your collection, and you'll have a damn good time doing it.

5.0 su 5 stelle An original piece of work 24 agosto 2012
Di John D. Nesbitt - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Matt Mayo's novel is an original piece of work. While it has many of the features of a traditional western, it is written from the point of view of a character who has a distinct voice and world view. The novel also has carefully managed word use and sentence style. This is a work that will hold the reader's interest all the way through.
5.0 su 5 stelle Great central character, and outstanding series opener! 20 dicembre 2014
Di Nicholas Litchfield - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

A couple of years back, I read an exceptionally good short story by Matthew P. Mayo called “O Unholy Night.” It was a ghostly Christmas tale featuring Maple Jack and his buddy Roamer. I still think it ranks as one of the best things Mayo has written. I didn’t realize until much later that the character Roamer had previously appeared in Mayo’s second novel for the well-known UK publisher Robert Hale.

I was pleased to find I already had a copy of this book (the newer version, not the Robert Hale edition.) Like dozens of others, it had sat untouched on my digital bookshelf for way too long. Silly, really, when the book can be read in a matter of a few hours. It’s one of those edge of your seat ones that never seem to offer a good place to stop reading. The story revolves around the lead character, Roamer, accused of a murder he didn’t commit, but instead of fleeing and living as a wanted man he’s determined to prove his innocence. In contrast to his other novels, this tale is told in the first person. It also has one of the best narrative hooks you’re likely to read—Roamer wakes from sleep one morning to find a grizzly bear about to attack him. It’s an exciting scene, well researched, well written, and sets the tone for the rest of the novel.

This was a very entertaining novel. Of all Mayo’s characters, Roamer (who has the sort of face that turns stomachs) is his best hero and I look forward to reading his next adventure. (C’mon Mayo, write another Roamer tale!)
5.0 su 5 stelle Top-Notch Traditional Western 23 agosto 2012
Di James Reasoner - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
WRONG TOWN is a new e-book release of the first novel by Matthew P. Mayo, originally published as a Black Horse Western a few years ago. It's also the first book in the Roamer series and has a great opening as the narrator/protagonist, who goes by the name Roamer, is attacked while he's sleeping by a grizzly bear.

This is a very harrowing scene. It's not a big spoiler to say that Roamer survives his encounter with the bear, but then things get even worse. While he's still in bad shape from that battle, he's robbed and left a-foot by a couple of drifting outlaws. Despite everything that's happened to him, Roamer is stubborn and a survivor, and those qualities allow him to make it to the town of Tall Pine.

Where, you guessed it, things continue to get even worse.

In the great tradition of noirish Westerns by authors such as Lewis B. Patten and H.A. DeRosso, the town of Tall Pine is full of dark secrets, and Roamer finds himself being blamed for a murder he didn't commit. With nobody he can trust and with a truly despicable villain manipulating things, it's all he can do to stay alive and try to untangle the deadly web being woven around him.

WRONG TOWN has a solid plot and fine characters, but its strongest appeal is the narrative voice that Mayo gives to Roamer. Ugly enough to make babies cry and somewhat antisocial because of his appearance, Roamer is also highly intelligent and well-read, in addition to being pretty doggoned tough. He's a great character, and I'm glad there are more novels about him on the way. In the meantime, WRONG TOWN is a top-notch traditional Western yarn and well worth reading.
