Hogan and His Marshal: “The Doomsday Marshal” — A Book Review

The Doomsday Marshall, from 1975, is another transport-the-prisoner Western with flinty Marshall John Rye as the transporter and disgraceful Luke Braden as the prisoner.  Braden is en route to being hanged, but has a purty wife hoping to free him and former friends hoping to kill him before he blabs what he knows.

Written by Ray Hogan, TDM is a book, not a movie, albeit it would make a good movie.  Ne’er a dull moment is here, ne’er a plot point (as I recall) to make you wince.  As for Hogan’s style, it is ordinary and palatable—perhaps not needing the kind of editing some oaters call for but don’t get.

I liked it.  But, boy, those Old West duties were hell!
