This story was quite unnerving. I can see elements of this happening already in our society. Interestingly enough there was a Star Trek episode that had parallels to this story.
Although I had to read this story three or four times to fully appreciate it's implications, it is a story we must all take to heart.
Good western, so good that I read Ronicky Doone's Reward and intend to read the third Ronicky Doone book. Lots action with characters you expect to find but with enough twists and turns to keep your attention.
