Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] starkly beautiful story that is quiet and harrowing, rock-hard and richly textured. Part mystery, part love story…moving.” Brett Lott, author of Dead Low Tide
“Good for anyone who likes good, strong, old-fashioned, right-or-wrong reads, and Martin does have a following.” Library Journal
“Charles Martin is a sensitive fellow. He is also one hell of a writer. His latest book tells the story of a modern day Texas Ranger. It will have you cheering, and crying, of course.” Florida Times-Union
“Entertaining hybrid of James Lee Burke's morality tales and Nicholas Sparks' sentimental journeys. A John Wayne hero, multiple appreciations of the Colt Model 1911 and a cowboy-gets-the-girl.” Kirkus Reviews
“Martin has an incredible gift for characterization and writing that tugs at the emotions without being overly melodramatic. This is the type of novel you will want to read quickly, because it is so engrossing, yet want to savor because the prose is meaningful and poignant.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
Thunder and Rain is one of the best books I have read in years....this book reads easy and Mr. Martin tells a story that grabs you from the first chapter and keeps you turning the pages. Before you know it, the book is almost done. This is the first of Martin's books I have read and now I'm a fan. If you like westerns, read the book. If you like action stories, read the book. If you're a fan of Texas or the mystique associated with the Texas Rangers, get the book. If you like a great story that culminates in the triumph of good over evil—yeah—get the book. Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed. Skinnymoose.com
