“Mike Stone: Texas Ranger” was a fantastic and very enjoyable read. This story details Mike Stone who moves to Texas and gets the calling from the Texas Rangers. This was just a great, old-fashioned, fast-paced western that leaves you wanting more. Additionally, the author did a great job of developing the characters, and providing a great ending with a great sense of justice. …a great read that I highly recommend.
