The Stone Justice Series
Robert C. Mowry
Parson Justin P. Stone leaned on his cane at the railroad dock in
Washington D. C. and gazed westward, towards the great desert country to
where he longed to return. He had his plans: see some old friends,
spend time with his long estranged son, and maybe start some churches
for younger men to take over. However, Lincoln had other plans. Saying
no usually wasn't difficult for Stone—saying no to his old childhood
friend, Abe Lincoln, was. His coat pocket was full of letters. One
making him active in his old Army rank of Colonel, another one made him
an Army Chaplain, and a third one gave him unlimited requisition powers.
The silver-star pinned inside his vest made him a special US Marshal,
answering directly to the president. Lincoln’s top priorities: keep
Arizona Territorial Governor Goodwin alive and the territory in Union
control. No easy task in such a lawless land. The Rebel sympathizing,
Knights of the Golden Circle controlled most of the towns—the Apaches
most of the country. “Out there is not but a handful of undersupplied
troops, and I have no money or men to do anything about it,” Lincoln
had said. “All I have is you—you and God.” His six gun hidden under
one arm, his Bible held in his other, Stone leaned on his wooden leg.
The train whistle pierced the early morning stillness. Time for this
mission to begin. How would it end?

Robert Mowry is a longtime resident of the southwest where much of this
story takes place. He is a student of the area’s rich history with
firsthand knowledge of most of the settings and locations depicted in
this story. Tucson Knights is a realistic, though fictional, story depicting things, and people, as they were at that time.
The Stone Justice Series has been a good series to read so far. This is book 2 and the book keeps your attention, keeps those pages turning. It is very well written and I'm sure the author did a lot of research to get a backing for this story. We have Parson Justice P. Stone who has several letters from President Lincoln. Those letters made him a Colonel in the Union Army, a letter giving him requisition powers, and one making him an Army Chaplain. It's time for the mission to start. the Parson is on a mission for Lincoln. But what will the parson do against the Knights of the Golden Circle.? They want the Confederacy to win the war by taking over the south.
The president had made the Parson a US Marshal who only took orders from the President. It was proudly shown by the silver star that was visible on his vest. The Knights want the Parson to join their forces. The Parson took a pass on that one. This made the Knights very observant of what the Parson did at all times. Then the Parson learned of the possible murder of the Governor. The Parson is trying to take on the world and spread the good word all together. This book will take you on an adventure in time. As you turn the pages can you figure out how the mission will end? I was a bit surprised. Grab a copy of this enjoyable read and find out for yourself. Good book for anyone. Looking forward to Book Three.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Robert C. Mowry, in exchange for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
