This is my first time reading Clark Casey, but it won't be my last. He has created an old purgatorial western town called Damnation. The town is inhabited by lowlives, outlaws, a vampire, and werewolves. Damnation is a gun-slinging ghost town located somewhere between heaven and hell.
Buddy Baker died by hanging for killing more men than Billy the Kid. There are two simple rules that you must follow in Damnation: If you get shot, you go directly to hell. If you stay alive without shooting anyone for one year, you just might get into heaven. The outlaws play poker at the local saloon and bet on who will be sent to hell next. Buddy Baker gets caught up in the thick of it when he swears to protect a pregnant lady. Everyone is interested in the baby. I will stop there before I say too much.
DAWN IN DAMNATION is a solid read. The characters are interesting and well developed. The storyline stays tight and the scenes are vivid. I can't wait to read the sequel!
4/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
