This series is likely to become my new not-so-guilty pleasure. This is the first in a series of several hundred books that have been coming out for 30 years. This first installment introduces us to US Marshal Custis Long, better known as Longarm. We have a western-action-mystery here with a dose of random gratuitous sex thrown in for fun. Although not terribly explicit, the sex scenes border on erotic and ridiculous and embarrassingly enough I rather enjoyed them.

Longarm is off to Wyoming to investigate the disappearance of a fellow US Marshal and to bring back a prisoner who is thought to have connections to the James-Younger gang. A bunch of other lawmen show up claiming rights to the same prisoner. The characters are well fleshed out and downright hilarious. My favorite being the gun toting midget and his wife. I could read a whole book of just their adventures.

A lot of fun to read. My only complaint is there are way too many typos. And tracking down the next 300+ books may prove to be difficult.
