First things first: Mystery isn't my preferred genre. That being said, I do like a little mystery in what I read, so it's not a totally new genre for me.Oh, and note, 3 starts on still means I liked it so, yeahThe opening chapters were AMAZING! I was totally drawn into those battlefield scenes I do kind of wish the rest of the book had been like that.As for the mystery well When it finally played out, if felt a bit like an episode of "Castle" you know, when they finally pick the bad guy and the [...]

I can see why this book has generated so many positive reviews. It has a little something to offer most readers who love the western genre.This is a story ultimately about greed. Shaw is a lone gunman who is called upon to right injustices when the law can not be relied on. Samuel is a man grieving for his son, who has been shot by an expert marksman. Sarah is Samuel's wife but Shaw's love interest. Pollard is a marksman who is over confident in his ability. But it is the story of "the shot" tha [...]

I am always pleased to write a review for an exceptional book by an exceptional author. I don't usually read westerns but I had ordered the paperback copy for my brother who was recovering from open hear surgery (5 bypass). I had met Mr. Chamerlain on twitter and noticed that he wrote westerns. My brother always liked westerns. Then I just had to order the e-book for myself, I was hoping to be able to discuss the book with my brother.I like the way this author writes. The book moves along at a g [...]

This is a mystery within a love story within deftly written frontier saga. Chamberlain's language is as simple and clean and on-target as the rifles his protagonist and antagonist employ as the tools of their trade. And the technical details of his descriptions invest every scene with the clarity of a mountain stream. The tale spends much of its time in that ever-fascinating space between what is beyond the reach of the law, but still moral; between what is legally permissible and what is just. [...]

The Long Shooters is a wonderful mixture of several genres all thrown into one great book. Mr. Chamberlian is an excellent storyteller. I love mysteries, but this tale is so much more than that. This story has all of the trimmings. I can't resist a good love story. I don't want the guys out there to worry about that though. This story doesn't gush over with that aspect of the tale, but there is just the right amount to put a small glow into the reader's heart. While I can usually figure out who [...]

Oh brother give me a break. This is why we can't have nice things and why no one takes westerns seriously.Potential spoilers ---Hired gun comes into town. In 5 minutes he's in love with another man's wife and in 10 minutes he's found the evidence that pegs the bad guy. The next day he's in town confronting the marshal who he immediately identifies as crooked and who immediately spills his story implicating himself to a complete stranger. Fight scenes as good as anything you'd see in a Steven Sea [...]

This is a very nicely written, interesting, and compelling story. Mr. Chamberlain has clearly put time, effort, heart and soul into the creation of this story and that is why I entitled this review "not a Pulp Western" as he clearly wasn't banging it out to meet some sort of deadline. It is evident that he is a scholar of the period and knows his subject. I hope to see more work from him in the near future.

The western genre deserves a talented writer like Daniel Chamberlain. For a first novel The Long Shooters is a tour de force.Dan manages to weave a nuanced original story with great characters, vivid scenes and accurate history. To top it off it ends with an unpredictable surprise. This is storytelling at its very best, equal in every way to the great writers of western lore.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mr. Chamberlain's story is well written, his research of civil war weaponry is excellent and believable and includes well-developed characters, adventure, action and a touching romance.

A modern take on the classic western morality tale full of authentic detail, particularly regarding period weapons and their use. The characters are interesting, and the mystery was a good one. All-in-all, a highly enjoyable read.

This is one of the best western novels I have read in quite some time. I was very disappointed that this was the only book written by this author. I hope he reconsiders.

Excellent story in the tradition of Zane Grey. It had everything I look for in a western: authenticity, good characters, suspense, adventure, plus there was a mystery to solve.

Darn goodWell researched. Some POV issues but certainly not enough to take away from the reading pleasure. A book Western fans can enjoy reminiscent of L'Amour

Well crafted cowboy mystery. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different and easy to read.

Excellent story. Excellent Western. I think the Shaw/Sarah story develops a bit too quickly, but that's a minor quibble. The characters were believable, and the story very compelling.
