Book Review: The Geraldi Trail

This story is the tale of James Geraldi who is portrayed as a master thief who took his money from the thieves who stole from the unwitting and defenseless in the community. The story begins with Geraldi helping a past criminal friend escape from the law when he is accused of a murder he didn’t commit.

This selfless act loses him his love of his life and when he returns from his successful escape he is shocked to find that his love has disappeared. He has made his life into an empty shell as he is tied to the woman he loved so completely. He will try everything to get her back inside his life. During this time, Geraldi is being steadily chased by the notoriously successful law officer, Tex Arnold. He uses all manner of escape tricks and mind manipulation to deceive  this officer of the law. Marshal Arnold continues to chase him and seeks him out, around every corner.

The story is easy to read and keeps the reader totally involved as his chase continues and the stakes get higher as he tries to get back in the good graces of his love. He has to finally face the most dangerous and maddening foe to maybe win the love of his life back into his arms. On this escapade he faces a man that has sworn to eliminate him from the face of the earth but he doesn’t know what Geraldi looks like.

I recommend this book to all readers of westerns and you will experience good writing joined with excellent story telling. If you are like me these two factors will enable you to truly cover yourself in the complex spirit of this western story as you try and anticipate where the main character is going and if he will be successful in his quest..
