Your Daily Ralph~Major Lacy Book Review 5/17/14

Major Lacy Book Review


I finished reading a book entitled ‘The New Adventures of Major Lacy and Amusement Inc.’. I had never heard of the character before picking this new book up. Lacy and his men are a team of ex-World War One soldiers who, looking for something to do to aid society, become vigilante hunters of criminals. It’s an interesting book in that these men, not unlike the Shadow or the Spider hunt down and kill their enemies on the wrong side of the law. They’re not looking to arrest anyone. They opt for a more permanent solution.

The book is written by some of the top names in New Pulp. Men like Bobby Nash, Andrew Salmon, David White, and Jim Beard among others.

This is a great book about a very obscure character who deals with his enemies with finality. Along the way you get to meet his crew of soldiers (All Ex-Marines) who aid him and continue to act as a well-oiled fighting unit.

Lacy is a soldier, not a super-hero ala Doc Savage. He’s down and dirty in many ways when it comes to fighting his enemies. Enemies which include the Scarlet Ace and his daughter Zita, who are basically Lacy’s opposites on the side of crime.

It’s an action filled, exciting book that held my attention. I can’t say enough good things about it. Well worth reading. Go get yourself a copy today!
