THE GUNSMITH: DEADLY FORTUNE By J. R. Roberts – Reviewed

Never has a series been more like a male version of Mills and Boon than the Gunsmith series. Bearing in mind, this is my first, and probably my last, dip into a series which runs at least 398 books.

This is a western, where Clint Adams, the Gunsmith, heads into a new town and is attacked. He meets a beautiful fortunate-teller and decides to help her out, swiftly becoming involved in a battle against the local tough, Mr Torquelan, a gangster and murderer.

Pretty simple stuff, written by numbers, and including a few action scenes, fist-fights and shoot-outs, and a couple of almost pornographic love scenes.

The men are hardy, the women are easy. The action is plenty, the story is minimal.

This is a few hours of mindless entertainment, and literally nothing more.

Entertaining enough, but only just.
