The people of that remote desert town called him Gatten, but that was not his real name. Those who knew his real name never told anyone. And if they knew, they never told anyone why he had come so far or waited so long to right some old wrongs and give the wrongdoers the dose of lead they needed.

The two people who seemed the most worried about Gatten’s intentions were crippled old Colonel Easton and the young woman who claimed to be his wife. After Gatten shot their black cook off the balcony outside the window of his hotel room, they sent their so-called ranch hands, one or two at a time, to kill him. But after the old Colonel’s heart quit on him because of all the excitement, the remaining hands began to suspect that the beautiful and deadly young widow was deliberately sending them to their deaths, knowing they were no match for a gundowner like Gatten. Some of them even suspected that Gatten was a rider from hell, sent by the devil to send them where they belonged. But they wouldn’t know the real truth until they themselves became hell riders.

WARNING: Reading a Van Holt western may make you want to get on a horse and hunt some bad guys down in the Old West. Of course, the easiest and most enjoyable way to do it is vicariously—by reading another Van Holt western.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

What some reviewers have to say about Van Holt’s writing: Step aside Louis L'Amour, another great Western writer is here… --Heather “I had a feeling that Van Holt…might actually be the successor to Zane Gray, a master Western storysmith, whose novels set the style of a generation.” --Stern0 “Van Holt is King of the Spaghetti Western…” --Rarebird1 Van Holt wrote his first western when he was in high school and sent it to a literary agent, who soon returned it, saying it was too long but he would try to sell it if Holt would cut out 16,000 words. Young Holt couldn't bear to cut out any of his perfect western, so he threw it away and started writing another one. A draft notice interrupted his plans to become the next Zane Grey or Louis L'Amour. A tour of duty as an MP stationed in South Korea was pretty much the usual MP stuff except for the time he nabbed a North Korean spy and had to talk the dimwitted desk sergeant out of letting the guy go. A briefcase stuffed with drawings of U.S. aircraft and the like only caused the overstuffed lifer behind the counter to rub his fat face, blink his bewildered eyes, and start eating a big candy bar to console himself. Imagine Van Holt's surprise a few days later when he heard that same dumb sergeant telling a group of new admirers how he himself had caught the famous spy one day when he was on his way to the mess hall. Holt says there hasn't been too much excitement since he got out of the army, unless you count the time he was attacked by two mean young punks and shot one of them in the big toe. Holt believes what we need is punk control, not gun control. After traveling all over the West and Southwest in an aging Pontiac, Van Holt got tired of traveling the day he rolled into Tucson and he has been there ever since, still dreaming of becoming the next Zane Grey or Louis L'Amour when he grows up. Or maybe the next great mystery writer. He likes to write mysteries when he's not too busy writing westerns or eating Twinkies. Warning: Reading a Van Holt western may make you want to get on a horse and hunt some bad guys down in the Old West. Of course, the easiest and most enjoyable way to do it is vicariously—by reading another Van Holt western. Van Holt writes westerns the way they were meant to be written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen They call him Gatten... 19. April 2014
Von Karma - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
They call him Gatten. Whether that’s his name or not is anyone’s guess. The stranger that not many seem to know certainly seems to worry Colonel Easton and his attractive young wife. Gatten kills Easton’s cook and then one by one, all of his ranch hands. As the bodies pile up and Easton passes from all the excitement, all indications point to a past between Gatten and his recent widow.

The Hell Riders is fast paced, easy to read and full of action. Van Holt is a masterful author that captures the Old West with original characters and authentic language. 5 stars!

4.0 von 5 Sternen THE OLD WEST RIDES AGAIN! 10. April 2014
Von Online Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Van Holt is no stranger to gun-slinging, action-packed and excitement-filled western fiction. In a career that has seen just three to four full circles of years he has authored over thirty-five hardcore westerns, slugging his creative mind to imagine how life was lived in the real western world, and put them to paper the way they were meant to be written. The old west comes alive through his books, pumping a rush of excitement into the reader’s blood as the old west rides again.

The Hell Riders is Van Holt’s latest western offering which follows a man who nobody really knows. When the stranger appeared in the weather-beaten plank town one cold windy afternoon no one knew for certain what his name was. When somebody remarked that he looked a lot like another stranger, named Gatten, it stuck and he was called Gatten. No one knew his purpose, yet everyone knew he wouldn’t come without a purpose. And soon, it was clear enough that he had a dogged determination in venturing into that remote desert town. And when the body count begins to pile up, it became evident that he had a deadly intention.

The characterization, plot twists and the rich and varied descriptions are really good. Van Holt has established himself as one of the best contemporary writers of the western genre. However, there are several instances where the author seems to have messed up, primarily relating to his sentences. Though its meaning is understandable, it did, however, manage to spoil the flow of the book. I feel that the author can do with the help of some good editor which will distinctly shape up the book. Despite its minor flaws, The Hell Riders was a fun read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Hell Riders 19. April 2014
Von Brian - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
The Hell Riders by Van Holt is definitely a must read. When a stranger rolls into an otherwise peaceful town, the townspeople know little about him, but he resembles someone named Gatten. The name sticks. One thing you can count on is that he didn't blow into town to play nice. He's there to right wrongs and settle old scores.

I've had the privilege of reading a handful of other Van Holt novels. I can say, unequivocally, that I have never been disappointed. He's one of the prolific writers in the Western genre. If you're a fan of the Old West, this is one author whose work you shouldn't miss!

Despite everything, Van Holt lives up to his publicist's dreams. This book, like many others he has written, is the quintessential type of western I love. Great read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Re-Revised Review: `One of the big three-- Zane Gray, Louis L'Amour, and Van Holt.' 10. April 2014
Von Grady Harp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
RE-REVISED REVIEW: Reading another Van Holt Western is like have that extra piece of cake or pie or donut or whatever indulges your fancy. As said before, `Spaghetti westerns in both cinematic and literary formats have long been a favorite with readers: they take adventure on a man to man level to the maximum without the need for intervention by aliens or comic book hero types. If my count is correct Van Holt has penned thirty-six gun-fighting novels (seems his actual count of books written is around sixty, the others being adventures outside of the Old West). So here is another inimitable western yarn, but this book deserves extra attention. I'll let the author explain why from the Intro to THE HELL RIDERS:

`This book seems to be about racism in the old West, but is really about other things. Racism is often the scapegoat for many other problems. And of course the politically correct fanatics have discovered that they can not only control the way we talk, but even the way we think by making some words seem too horrible to be allowed to enter the minds of normal right-thinking people..... This old western was written in longhand almost thirty years ago. I wouldn't write it at all now, but most of it seemed too good to throw away. So I decided to get rid of the controversial word whenever possible.....In this strange western, the man called Gatten doesn't shoot the black man off the hotel balcony because he's black, but because he was trying to shoot Gatten through the window of his room.' Direct quote (excerpted) from this book, this!

Gatten, or so the townsfolk called him, is a typical Van Holt character: he came a long way and endured patience to right some old wrongs and give the wrongdoers the dose of lead they needed. The players include Col. Easton and his `young wife', the black man Gatten's shoots, the `hell riders' who pursue Gatten, and the twists and turns after Easton dies leaves behind the beautiful but evil widow how stirs the pot of vengeance. It is another walloping rendering of the flavor of the Old West, and with Van Holt churning out these books we will thankfully never tire of the tales he creates. Grady Harp, April 14
