Frank Leslie is the pen name of Peter Brandvold. He grew up in small towns throughout North Dakota. He attended both University of North Dakota and University of Arizona. Brandvold loves all kinds of westerns, whether they be movies, television series, or novels, and started to write his own novels more than ten years ago. Since then, he has written more than seventy under both his own name and the name Frank Leslie. He has lived in many places in the west and lives in western Minnesota. He has written some scripts and short stories too. Brandvold has also written some horror novels as well.

He is the author of many series, the long list of which includes: the “Longarm” series, the “Ralph Compton” series, the “Trailsman” series, the “Lonnie Gentry” series, the “.45 Caliber series”, the “Lou Prophet”, “Yakima Henry” series, and “The Revenger” series.

“A Bullet for Sartain” is the first book in “The Revenger” series by Frank Leslie. “The Revenger” is a western series that has a lot of sexiness and action. This series is about Mike Sartain (who is the Revenger). He grew up in New Orleans’s French Quarter, where he learned to be tough and mean and fight from the meanest people that can be found in any port. He also learned how to love by some of the prettiest and most beautiful women that you can find anywhere in the world. When the Civil War broke out, He lied about his age so that he could join the Confederacy. By the end of the war, he journeyed west and joined the frontier cavalry. An old prospector and his daughter Jewel nursed Mike back to health after he was wounded by Apaches. Yankee bluecoats kill both people who helped him. Mike responded by finding each and every person responsible and killed them all in his own way. The prospector was bad but Jewel was worse because she was carrying his child. It was because of that they he became wanted by the police and now has a dead-or-alive tag on his head.

Fans of the novel like how different this character is from some of Leslie’s other characters that he has written about. They also liked the way that the novel entertained them throughout the reading of it. Leslie writes a fine western. There was a lot of action, guns, and bedroom action too, that provides something for everyone. Leslie is great at telling a story, especially a western. The novel gives readers a great ride, and keeps them turning pages, until they finish the novel. They also could not wait for the next novel in the series. This series is for fans of Brandvold’s other series.

Some readers did not like the way the all of women are beautiful and the men are evil people that Mike has to kill. The women did not seem to vary in looks all that much. They also said that the novels feel like a lot of what is out there in the western novel market, without a whole lot to add.

“Death & The Saloon Girl” is the second book in “The Revenger” series by Frank Leslie. Mike Sartain is back and is called to Colorado to look over a girl who needs his help. The girl, Belle Higgins, is pulling him into a trap, a beautiful one he finds, but a trap none the less. He finds himself in the Sangre de Cristo mountains to find Belle’s missing father, gold, Stephen Higgins (sheriff) and Jasper Garvey (Higgins’s deputy). On the way through, he gets into some gunfights, and finds some half-buried men and a blonde mountain girl named Crazy Mary. She seems bound and determined to kill Mike with her repeating rifle or her body. Or the English wife of a mine owner may do it also. If it is not one thing, then it is something else that is trying to kill him, but that is business as usual for Mike “The Revenger” Sartain.

Fans of the novel loved it for the highly interesting story line the author wrote this time around. This novel left fans ready for more books in the series. Leslie is a pro at writing great western novels. The novel is full of a lot of action, and the novel is great for men, and has some surprises for all readers. They liked how no matter what gender the character was, they were not to be trusted at all..

Some readers did not like how far fetched the story in the book seemed this time around. They felt that the situations, both with bad guys and in the bedroom, Mike was put in were very unbeliveable. Some felt that the novel had far too many proof reading errors and there were so many that it was hard to read the book.

“The Bittersweet War” is the third book in “The Revenger” series by Frank Leslie. Mike Sartain, “The Revernger”, rides once again in this, the third novel of this popular series. Mike is currently in West Texas and is heading to Mexico because lawmen and bounty hunters are hot on his trail. He decides to spend some time, laying low, and hanging out with women Mexico has to offer. In the Davis Mountains, trouble finds him in the small town of Bittersweet; as the women are both bitter and sweet, as Mike soon finds out. There are many secrets in this town and in the mountains too, where there is a dead man in a shallow grave. He is pulled in to some trouble and drama, that he soon wishes he would not have allowed. This is caused by the Chaney family feud turning deadly, and the Revenger out in the cold of the desert to be food for the crows.

Fans of the novel could not help themselves from turning the pages, well into the morning light. Some found that even if they do not regularly read, they enjoyed these books quite a bit, and could not stop themselves from wanting more. Especially from this author.

Some readers did not like the way some of the characters in the novel had no depth and the women were still just beautiful, as if the author of these books only knew beautiful as a way to describe his women.
