What Readers Say










An excellent read!  Five stars.

The story is complex.  Not so complex that it is difficult to follow, but difficult to anticipate the ending.  I thought I had figured it out several times only to come up short.  The ending did come as a complete surprise!

Followers of westerns, science fiction, and mysteries will find this book compelling.

This book keeps you thinking right up to the last paragraph.  I had to give it some thought, and recall some details from the book, before I figured it out.

The characters are well ‘fleshed out’ and believable.  You will find it easy to like them, or not, as appropriate.

Highly recommended!  Five star for sure!

Let me say first off that A Transgression in Time is not a small book.  I figured it is around 538 pages, maybe a little more, but not less than that, so you get more than your money’s worth.

I know we’ve all read books with many pages, but the difference with Transgression is that it is well written and has so many twists and turns that you are never bored, but instead it is a fast paced mystery that will keep you spellbound page after page, and just when you think you have it figured out, it takes another turn.

You’ll find yourself identifying with the characters and the battle to win over evil.  And what a battle is is!  If you like to be entertained, this book will do more than that, it will keep you on the edge of your seat!  A Transgression in Time is a murder mystery, love story and a lesson in human nature, both good and evil.  I give it a five star rating.

A friend gave me a copy of Madigan.  I must say that had I seen it in the book store I wouldn’t have bought it.  It is what I’m told they call a Trade Paperback.  I like the smaller paperbacks so I can keep them with me to read when I feel like it.  but who looks a gift horse in the mouth?  It was free.  Normally I read a book a little at a time.  Maybe taking two weeks to finish it.  I read the first page of Madigan and had to read the second and before I knew it the sun came out and I’d read the whole thing through!  Talk about a book that should be made into a movie!!!!!! This is it!!!!!  I still think it would sell better in a smaller version, but what do I know about the book market?  What I do know is that I have never picked up a book and read it from cover to cover before.  To say I liked the book is an understatement.  I loved it.  When I looked for more books from R howard Trembly I was disappointed to find none.  Is he still writing?  I surely hope so.

My husband turned me on to Louis L’Amour some years ago and I have been an avid read of westerns for some time now.  But unfortunately, many of them have the same worn out them:  stranger rides into town, finds beautiful woman (a widow) about to lose her ranch to some unscrupulous banker, big rancher, or outlaws.  The widow is totally at a loss to help herself in any way.  Come on!  If women were as helpless as most western writers make them out to be, the Indians would have kicked our butts out of the west and kept us out!  It wasn’t just the men that did all the work!  The stranger feels sorry for her and wanting nothing more than to help this helpless widow regain what belongs to her, does so in the next two hundred pages.  Still, I keep reading, hoping to find something new and exciting in a western, but to my dismay very seldom do until I was fortunate enough to see the book, Madigan, by R. Howard Trembly.  I was, to say the least, surprised to read a Western with a new and fresh plot that held me spellbound while I savored each new twist and turn.  I loved it!!!  And the woman are strong and in control of their lives for the most part.  I would also like to say that this is a story that just when you think you know what is about to happen, it doesn’t.

Mr. Trembly must, if married, drive his poor wife mad trying to figure out what his thinking at any one time.  I even find myself thinking what would Lewana do in certain situations.  I do hope there is going to be a series with Madigan as the central figure.  I’ll buy them all!

R. Howard Trembly’s “Madigan” is one of the Best Books I’ve read in years!  The story is “Riveting” and full of action!  The characters are well thought out, The story line is historically correct, and the suspense is “On the Edge of your seat”!  It should be a Movie!  I hope we haven’t seen the last of Madigan.  Yer Pard

Madigan is a breath of fresh western air.  Not since the late Mr. Lamour have I read such intensity and riveting western movies.  The book was hard to put down night after night, I wished it would never end.  Even after finishing, I read it again and was still captivated.  I hope to see R. Howard Trembly’s next work soon, for I am now a huge fan.  The characters became so real, you feel as if they have been around in your life since birth.  I highly recommend this book to any western story fan.

Who is this guy, where did he come from, this R. Howard Trembly?  He writes with a style that makes his characters come alive on each page–a cliff hangar in every chapter–making the reader want to keep reading page after page.  Madigan, the hero, is tough, but unlike the heroes in some popular westerns who can scale a sheer cliff after being shot full of holes, Madigan is more human with the strengths and weaknesses all men and women have.  The book takes you back to a time when good and evil were still sharply defined.  A great read!
