Overview From the gold and silver mines of California and Nevada to the wide open plains of Texas, the American West was a wild frontier in the 1870s where dangerous outlaws pursued devilish dreams of fortune.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Justice Riders?
finished in less than a day Jan 9, 2008
I bought this book as a gift for my dad who loves Westerns and likes to read. It was great to find one that was interesting, yet I didn't have to worry about the language it contained. My dad got it one evening and had finished it by noon the next day! I ordered the sequel for his birthday!
this is a 5 star novel not a 3 1/2 like you are giving it. I hope that the Norris's write more great novels. Chuck Norris and hi Jan 8, 2008
Chuck Norris and his brother Aaron are great authors. The books that I have had and read are 5 star; its hard for me to put the books down until I have read the whole book. Buy or go to the library and get the books that they written and read them;you won't be disappointed. Granny - granny
Color without development Dec 17, 2007
"The Justice Riders" succeeds in its efforts to create colorful characters and exciting action scenes. The book could be interesting, but it fails badly in the area of character development. Ezra Justice and his motley band of raiders fail at various levels to seem solidly grounded in reality. They, of course, take themselves seriously, but some readers may struggle to believe that such people truly exist anywhere in the world. Ezra is intended to develop spiritually during the book's course yet fails miserably in that area. Yes, Ezra learns a few lessons, but generally by being suddenly told, not through the natural progression of the book's plot. An additional concern for some readers, especially Southerners and those who strongly believe in the rules of just warfare, is that, while Ezra briefly questions the consequences of Sherman's March to the Sea, his concern is the bitterness it might cause, not that plunder and arson are war crimes, committed by war criminals. At any rate, readers who appreciate high-quality literature may want to avoid this book. Though in different hands it might have potential, "The Justice Riders" as it is reads like a dime novel.
I wish I could give it zero stars Jan 18, 2007
This book is, simply put, a crime against humanity. It's very offensive. An Indian that shoots arrows while everyone else has machine guns? An Irishman that drinks and a proper British sharpshooter? The stereotyping is ridiculous. Aside from that, the writing is just terrible. There were four people credited with writing this thing and not one them said "Wait a minute, this is terrible"? I suppose if you have no taste in literature whatsoever and like racism, this might be an okay book.
Good but Flawed Dec 12, 2006
Captain Ezra Justice has been put in charge of an elite task force during the final days of the Civil War. Their mission is to wreak havoc wherever they can behind the Confederate's lines. The more confusion they can create, the better the chance the Union has of bring the conflict to a conclusion.
Even after the war is over, their job isn't done. There are pockets of resistance left that refuse to surrender. One of these is led by Mordecai Slate. His path seems to cross Ezra's on multiple occasions.
Ezra's current mission, however, is to help with the transportation of prisoner of war. Most of them are weak or sick from their times in the Confederate's prison camps. They are so close to returning home. Yet major danger lurks in their way.
I am not a huge Chuck Norris fan, but have caught a few episodes of his TV show. This book reads like what I know of the show. The emphasis is on the action, and there are several great action scenes. The characters are a little short, but they are still interesting. The line between good and evil is clearly drawn. The story, while interesting, could have used some better focus. The time in history came to life, and I enjoyed the focus on a little known historic event. This is obviously a first novel, however, as the writing is weak.
Some more polish would have made this book much better. Hopefully, as the series progresses, the flaws of this debut will vanish.
