Golden Spike concludes the trilogy. The Golden Spike was the joining of the East to the West for the Railroad and this story is the author's creativity rendering of that event with colorful characters, some mystery, and suspense. I won a copy of this book during a Goodreads giveaway. Murphy traveled the route of the transcontinental railroad, walked the ground where the scenes take place, and visited the museums and historical parks along the way. Prior to becoming an author, Murphy worked with international organizations on all seven continents, including Antarctica, where Murphy Peak bears his name.

This book is billed as being the first in the GOLDEN SPIKE TRILOGY.

The Union Pacific Railroad is finding itself the target of a gang of outlaws. The time is shortly after the Civil War and rumour has it the gang is lead by Harvey Kidd, a ruthless man long thought dead, killed during the close of the war.

The Railroad is heading for the town of Black Creek and the outlaws gather. Into this explosive mix rides mysterious stranger Dane Bowman, a man with a lightning fast gun. Bowman, ex-Union, finds himself siding an ex-Rebel, Grimes, who people want killed. Why? All Grimes has is a totally worthless plot of land. Whose side is Bowman really on? He takes on outlaws and lawman alike.

Jake Lancer, who the book says has written for Jake Logan (Slocum series), is author David Jacobs. Here he provides us with a book that contains mystery elements with the who are they and why are they questions. The book builds slowly to a violent conclusion that throws in a few surprises to go along with the answers to those questions.

For me, though, I felt the book would have been better shorter. DJ spends a lot of time, especially at the beginning, with detailed descriptions of locations and actions, which occasionally seemed like padding. The book only picking up pace once Bowman and Grimes reach Black Creek about a third of the way into this 279-page story.

Along with picking up pace the book moves rapidly from one revelation to another and gunfights come frequently making me pleased I didn't give up on it during that first third which at one point I was tempted to do. In fact the latter two thirds have made me want to dig out one of those Slocum books and see what they're like.

Unfortunately the publisher ceased putting out westerns so the next two books of this trilogy never appeared.
