Valdez is Coming by Elmore Leonard

Valdez is ComingTo be honest, this is unlike most other western novels I’ve ever read. And that’s a good thing. The main character, Roberto Valdez, isn’t a hero or a wild gunslinger. He’s actually more of a boring character with an interesting past.

He only uses his gun as a last resort, but his loyalty to his mission is a quality that’s rarely found in today’s world.

As he’s beaten into the ground and left for dead in a harsh landscape, Valdez turns to his skills of survival and killing to exact revenge on a deep-pocketed villain and his gun-slinging followers.

If you’ve never read any Elmore Leonard, this is as good a place as any to start.
