    I really wanted to like this book It has some great things going for itl Estleman's writing and dialogue are strong as usual The characters are interesting choices The action scenes are good But something was lacking for me Charlie Siringo is such a great character and his real life so amazing it seems a waste to put him in a fictional mystery The little flashbacks set throughout the book offer such great glim

Them from the streets of Los Angeles to Jack London's farm until they discover a conspiracy masterminded by the notorious and powerful Joseph P KennedyFrom the first page to the closing chapter these ragtime cowboys chase the truth in Loren D Estleman's compelling tale of the Old West and early Hollywood I really wanted to like this book It has some great things going for itl Estleman s writing and dialogue are strong as usual The characters are interesting choices The action scenes are good But something was lacking for me Charlie Siringo is such a great character and his real life so amazing it seems a waste to put him in a fictional mystery The little flashbacks set throughout the book offer such great glimpses into a real western past that seemed much interesting than in the present the book was set And while I am sure Estleman did his research and Hammett is correctly portrayed I never fully believed in him He seemed like a movie idea of Hammett Why Estleman put these two together really made little sense to me other than they were both ex Pinkertons who had uit and it gave him the chance to sprinkle in a few allusions to Hammett s later work And using Joseph P Kennedy again seemed there so he could make some disparaging remark about John F Kennedy That time in history was amazing with the technology moving so fast with the inventions of cars planes telephones and people like Siringo coping with that rapidly changing world could make a fascinating tale but instead we get stock characters a cranky old curmudgeon and a tubercular romantic writer trying to be a tough guy I wish this book were better
