Tommy Parker has gone missing. After his parents turn up dead, it's up to his only friend, Jake, alongside Jake's older brother, Gus, to find him and bring him back home. However, when Jake reveals the truth about Tommy's abusive father and what really happened to his parents, Gus must make a life-changing decision: bring Tommy to justice, or do what he believes is right?
Well written, well read! As a long-time fan of Westerns, I'm always delighted to find a new author of this genre. The Protectors features complex and likable characters caught in a tough ethical dilemma. Without giving the ending away, I'll say it was most satisfying. This would be a book for YA readers, but also for adults. Jamie Renell read it beautifully. I'll be on the lookout for more books by P. Jo Anne Burgh.
