80. Brionne Louis L'Amour 1968
The book opens with a gang of ruffians burning Major Brionne's house and killing his wife. Brionne brings the killer to justice, thereby infuriating the rest of his blackguard clan. They pursue Brionne and his young son into Utah, where they meet President Grant's surreptitious body guard and a beautiful woman on a quest for a silver mine.
I thought the gentleman who turned up as The Honourable School Boy was shot in the back at the end of The Spy. I wallowed through TTSS (figured it out halfway through the book), Could barely open the School Boy, but LOVED Smiley's People.
