The storyline was so boringly predictable & not very well written. Had to force myself to finish it.
Pale Horse Coming is the second novel in Hunter’s Earl Swagger trilogy. This one has Earl Swagger incarcerated illegally in a vile southern prison reserved for blacks. Swagger survives brutal torture to escape and return as the Biblical Pale Horse Coming to take down the evil institution. As always with Hunter novels there’s detailed description of the guns used. The section where Swagger is tortured is brutal. I had to skip over the section where he was confined in the coffin. The next section where Swagger pulls together a team to take the prison down is more fun as it features characters who were modeled on real-life people. For example, Audie Ryan is not even a thinly disguised Audie Murphy. There are twists and turns along with the gun play. The novel is a fun, escapist read if the reader can forget that prisons for black people circa 1951 were brutal.
This was the first book of his that I read. Wow...great story and a real page turner. Good plot. However a little too many pages wasted on gun types and such. A little like Lee Childs. They do love their guns. But, I will read more of his books. I like the adventure and humor.
Just fabulous! 10 of 10 stars
