Three men come together in the town of Redemption Colorado, each for his own purpose. Huck Finn is a famous lawman not afraid to use his gun to protect the weak. He has come to right a terrible wrong. After his wife’s death, Tom Sawyer does not want to live anymore; he has come to die. The third man, the Laramie Kid, a killer Huck and Tom befriended years earlier has come to kill a man. For these three men Death is a constant companion. For these three men it is their last chance for redemption.
Everybody should read this, it’s better than the classic.
After reading many of the writer’s short stories and other works including the first draft of The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, you will not be disappointed. Not only will you enjoy the story but you will also love the way the characters are brought to life with vivid descriptions of the times and morals they lived in. I also eagerly await the day Andrew puts forth his book of short stories.
Every once in a while, I read a book that I wish would not end. Redemption is one of those. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! When I got to the last page, it pulled at my heartstrings.

First book in awhile and worth the read!
It's been awhile since I've had a chance to read a book and this one had me hooked. It keeps you going and wanting to read more. I'm a horse girl and a helicopter pilot so I know about adventure and this one fits the bill.
