    Frank Roderus' Old Kyle's Boy was an entertaining, quick and easy 185-page read.Cyrus Tetlo's mother died when he was a child. His father and older brother were hanged for cattle rustling.He returns to his home town in an effort to clear his family name and grow his family farm. Instead; he learns that his girl friend is engaged to a man who wants to kill him and is on the run from those who want him dead.Determined to clear his family name without damaging the happiness of the love of his life, he finds himself on the run dodging those who are targeting him. With exception to the homily girlfriend of his former love one, he learns that he can trust no one, not the law or any of the town folk who deem him as guilty as his father and brother.Mortally wounded and struggling to survive, Cy hangs on to a thread of a chance of survival to live out his dream.Frank Roderus tells a vivid and captivating tale that leads to a realistic, believable, satisfying and entertaining story that I thoroughly enjoyed.I bet you will like it too! Enjoy!

    This is as good as a Western can get. Great characters that you can relate with, bad guys that you want to root against. Just a great all around story. Not too much gore, but just enough action to keep you reading. I believe Frank Roderus is one of the best Western writers around, and this might be one of his best. I've read a number of his books, and I've enjoyed every one. This one is written in the first person, which is perfect for the type of story this is. I won't get into the details of the story. Instead, i just want to say buy it and read it. You won't be sorry you did. It would be particularly good if you have never read a Western before. It would be a great way to be introduced to the genre. But, if you are an avid Western reader, I believe you'll like it just as much.

    Young Cy had to grow up in a hurry, but it took 5 years for him to be able to try for justice for his family. With no one wanting him around, he learned how to stand on his own.Frank Roderus knows how to spin a good yarn. The only complaint is this Kindle edition is full of punctuation and word errors. For example, I'll becomes Til too frequently to be anything but poor editing, and dialogue fails to recognize that in the middle of a paragraph the author says, "and he said" but fails to start the quotes again. Leads to a little confusion.That's why I can give only 4.5 stars. Good story, good characters good western. Bad editor.

    To say that Frank Roderus can spin a good tale is totally inadequate. This is wonderful little book full of intrigue, adventure, love, revenge, and more. The story is quite believable and it was hard to lay down once I started it. People full of fear for hanging a man and his son for rustling cattle comes back to haunt them when the youngest son keeps the old home place and wants justice to be done. He knew nothing of the rustling only that his family had been jerked out from under him. He wanted justice. Enter a man full of himself who wanted the boy's land and his old girl and would do anything including murder to get them. The adventure is fast and furious so tighten your saddle and hold on tight for a good night of reading.

    I don't typically read westerns however I've read a few lately. I found Old Kyle's Boy interesting enough and for the most part held my interest. There were a few slow moments, but overall, I kept turning the pages to see what happened next. The author made some word choices that I found a bit awkward, but this is a personal choice. If you're a western fan, check out this book, and other books by Frank Roderus. I've read a few of his, and really enjoyed them.

    This author is one of my favorites in western adventure fiction. However, I did not find this up to his usual standard. The plot was interesting and the author writes well. Close to the end of the story the principal subject is trapped up on a mountain in the freezing cold with no food, a dead horse and, ultimately no weapon. Over a grinding overlong sequence of page after page he sustains various injuries and bullet wounds and finally (and I repeat finally) extracts himself. The book ends well, however.

    His dad and brother were hanged by vigilantes and he is shaking up the tight social structure of the valley to clear the family name. A fast and well written story of the changing west. Wish the hero would have pulled his trigger more often. Would have saved him a lot of grief. Worth the time.

    This is one of several books I have read from this author. They have all been very good reads. This one especially so. Great characters, well flushed out and excellent pacing. Surprise ending that will get you thinking back through the clues. Nice guys don't always have to finish last (one of many Yogi Berra isms)...shu
