The Deputies

(1969)
(The sixth book in the Rockabye County series)
A novel by

 
 
Deputy sheriffs Alice Fayde and Brad Counter looked at the body. It was that of a shapely, luciously-curved young woman. There were six bullet holes in the torso. And there was no face - only a hideously battered mass of blood and pulp. Sometimes the work of a modern peace officer can be even tougher than in the days of the Old West.

J.T. Edson was a former British Army dog-handler who wrote more than 130 Western novels, accounting for some 27 million sales in paperback. Edson's works - produced on a word processor in an Edwardian semi at Melton Mowbray - contain clear, crisp action in the traditions of B-movies and Western television series. What they lack in psychological depth is made up for by at least twelve good fights per volume. Each portrays a vivid, idealized "West That Never Was", at a pace that rarely slackens.
