Al and Joanna Lacy in their new book, “Deadlock” Book Two in the Return Of The Stranger series published by Multnomah returns us to the life of  Chief U.S. Marshal John Stranger and His wife, Breanna.

There are three Zarbo brothers and they are working their way to Colorado where they feel it is safe to continue their bank robberies and killings.  They made a mistake not knowing about the Marshal and they pay for it when John arrests one of them.  In an effort to prevent their brother from hanging the two remaining brothers kidnap Ginny and hold her hostage until John releases their brother.  There is also an event that happens to Breanna as well as other sub-plots that cause the reader to turn the pages as fast as possible.

This is the third series with John and Breanna; the first, “The Journeys Of The Stranger”, the second, “The Angel of Mercy” and now “The Return of The Stranger”.  Any book written by the Lacys is sure to be a winner but once you add in John and Breanna you have one of the best romances and explosive Western action.  One thing I have learned from reading this series is never touch John’s family-it gets him really angry.  As John prays and leans heavily on God for how to rescue his daughter he mounts a search and rescue mission that draws ever closer to a life and death decision.

This is a very exciting book and a wonderful addition to the series.  I recommend this book highly and am highly looking forward to the next book in the series.
