JELLY BRYCE: THE LEGEND BEGINS
By Mike Conti
Everyone loves a hero
This is a simple, well-told story about a little boy who was always in love with guns and mastered an old 22 rifle when he was a young lad. As he matured, he managed to get hold of other guns and pistols and spent hours shooting at various objects. As a result he developed a speed to shoot rapidly and accurately any time he shot. When he was a young man, on his way to college he was side tracked by a sign advertising a shooting contest, which he won. He always carried a gun on him, out of sight, and later he shot a felon, was temporarily arrested for it because he was not yet legally a law officer, and then joined the Oklahoma Police Dept. As he aged, he was partnered with experienced officers who taught him how to handle felons besides shooting them, and learned the science of being a detective by being partnered with a well experienced detective.
This story revolved around Deft Bryce as he developed to be famous in his job and his various heroic feats. It has been a long time since I have read any novels where the protagonist is a hero always and it leaves one with a good feeling. For a quick, light, entertaining read, I recommend this book.
