Book Review-Joaquin: A Tom Marsh Adventure - Vol 4 -John Rose Putnam

Wednesday, November 30, 2022



Minding his own business while traveling around to increase his freight business--Tom Marsh gets beat up by the local bad boy bully. This guy really has it in for him--he beats him up a second time. Ina Dare is a deaf woman who Tom befriends. Unfortunately Ina is supposedly the bully's girl! Ina's father shows up-------

Tom finds a dead man and is thrown into jail supposedly for killing him. In jail he meets up with Joaquin Murrieta, a Mexican who has also been falsely accused of killing someone. They manage to escape (you will laugh when you read how). Tom stays with Joaquin and his friends as he tries to prove his innocence.

A couple more murders----thank heavens for the honest doc!! A massive show down between the posse and the Mexicans. Ina's father shows up with a (gulp) honest judge--

The ending is not what you will expect--but is actually happily ever after for all involved. This is definitely a western that will keep you reading and enthralled. I almost felt like I was there!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

An ambitious Tom Marsh, looking to expand his gold rush freight business, finds himself falsely accused of murdering a young girl and is tossed into the Sonoma, California hoosegow along with a Mexican hombre who is himself accused of a murder he did not commit, but who could well be the most infamous bandito in California, Joaquin Murrieta. Together the two break out of jail and now Tom must stick close to Joaquin and his gang while he fights to prove his innocence.

About the Author: (from Amazon)


John came west as a young man and settled in Berkeley where he graduated from the University of California. He still lives and writes there and often gives a talk on the California gold rush to the gang at the Freight and Salvage.

He spent a lot of time digging into that gold rush too and many of his stories take place back then. John's characters are so real they'll jump right off the page and talk to you; his villains have hearts as cold as midnight and his heroes almost always do the right thing in the end.

He's working up quite a reputation for his knowledge of that era too. His blog, My Gold Rush Tales, attracted the interest of some TV folks and he appeared in a segment for the Travel Channel about Henry Meiggs, the man who built San Francisco's famous Fisherman's Wharf.

While his first novel, Hangtown Creek, a story of adventure, romance, and coming of age in the early days of the gold rush, was published in 2011, his brand new book, Into the Face of the Devil, moves between Hangtown and the sawmill where James Marshall first found gold, and pits a young man in love for the first time against a killer so evil he could pass for Satan.
