    There's a bounty on the head of bloodthirsty bandit Pachuco and the Man With No Name aims to collect. But how will he collect the bounty when Pachuco's in a territorial prison?

    When I found out there were tie in books featuring the Man With No Name of the Leone trilogy, I had to track one down and give them a shot. How was it?

    The story strayed between awesomely bad and cheezily awesome. When the hot air balloonist was introduced and became one of the main characters, I knew I wasn't going to get the book I was expecting. I decided to sit back and enjoy the ride.

    The writing is nothing to write home about but it's pretty pulpy and enjoyable in that way. I would have enjoyed the book a lot more if the main character wasn't supposed to be the Clint Eastwood character from the beloved trilogy. He was too nice and talked more in this slim volume than he did in all three movies combined. The hot air balloon played such a central part that it almost felt like an early steampunk story.

    Not bad but not great either. If you can find it for less than a buck and like pulpy prose, you might enjoy it.

    So Manco teams up with Professor Samson Garff, a Lee Van Cleef aeronaut, to catch the escaped convict Pachuco so that he can lead them to the gold he claimed to hide in the mountains.

    Meanwhile, the outlaw Froggy Benson is on the run, and is granted a medicine shirt from the Mescalero Apaches.

    It's not as out there insane as 'Blood for a Dirty Dollar', but it's still pretty colourful and creative.

    By the way, Manco speaks fluent Apache, which could have helped him out of being tied to a tree and nearly fed to maneating ants in 'A Dollar to Die For'.

    Between himself and his counterparts, Apachito and Bandera, Pachuco is the best written. He's still the classic Hollywood 'bandido' of the 1940s and 1950s, and doesn't have the development and humanity of the revisionist character type of the mid Sixties, but he's got a lot of personality.

    Millard still doesn't describe his facial features the way he describes Garff's, though.

    The book is a bit flabby around the middle and is padded with banter between Manco and Garff, but I recommend it. I think you'll enjoy this one.

    An original novel based on the Clint Eastwood character from the sixties western movies.

    In my teens I read quite a few Spaghetti Westerns.
    The influence was my Dad who use to watch the films.

    Another of the "new" advenures of the Man With No Name. Not great, but enjoyable.
