„Larramee’s Ranch” is another great and entertaining Max Brand novel! This is quite a change of pace for Max Brand. His hero Tom Holden is a bookish young man with a bad leg, no money, and no experience with firearms. When he sets out to make his fortune, he has no real prospects but through a series of bluffs he outwits a killer, faces down a town bully, makes a considerable bundle of money for himself. Then he announces he will marry Alexa Larrame, the beautiful blue-eyed daughter of the wealthiest rancher around – even though he’d never even met her! But now he has a lot more than just a rash promise to live up to. He is being accused of committing several robberies and murders in a town where the strong make the laws – and enforce them with bullets!
