“By the light of the rustler’s moon,
Jared makes his stand and faces down his demons.”

Jared Delaney rides into Cimarron, New Mexico in 1878 looking for a job, a cold beer and a warm bed but instead finds himself in the crossfire of a vicious range war that forces him to choose sides. Orphaned by outlaws who shot down his parents in cold blood, Jared’s childhood is shrouded in a mysterious fog leaving him with no memories and nightmares of a malevolent voice and the coldest blue eyes he’s ever seen.

Jared doesn’t want to get involved in the local troubles, yet everyone he meets tugs at him to join their faction. On one side, there’s the tough old sheriff, the beautiful and outspoken schoolteacher, and a struggling rancher and his wife. On the other is a slick bartender, a “soiled dove” and the powerful patron who seems disturbingly familiar. By the light of the rustler’s moon, Jared makes his stand and faces down his demons.

  • Good Western TaleDuanes7 on Amazon

    In the tradition of Louis L'Amour, this is a typical tale of good meets evil, good wins but not without some trouble.

  • Rustler’s Moon by Jim Jones (Five Stars)Penny Hardaway on Amazon

    I heard Jim Jones sing and play at the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in my home town. During one of his sessions he mentioned he'd written some books. I've read westerns all my adult life and it's getting hard to find good ones. I purchased both of Jim's books. The second one is Colorado Moon. He says there'll be a third one if enough interest is shown in his books. I could not put the books down. There is plenty of western action, along with well-developed characters. As one other reviewer said, sometimes you want to just smack Jared, or at least shake him. But he does finally make the right choices. Jim's characters are definitely human, sometimes noble, sometimes flawed, not always making the best choices. I can hardly wait for the third book.

  • Jim Jones has not only proven himself to be a great song writer and musician, he is also a talented writer. I started the second book Colorado Moon the same day I finished the first book Rustler's Moon. The story flows well and the characters are so believable. Part way through the book I wanted to give Jared a good smack but in the end he made the right choices. The writing structure is flawless and the storyline is great.

    Rustler's Moon is a story about a young man who was orhaned [SIC] at a young age when his parents were killed by outlaws. As he was growing up he developed a distrust for about everything. When he arrived in Cimarrón, NM in 1878 he arrived with a pretty hard crust. There was an internal war going on and he was approached by both sides to join. Not knowing who to trust or believe he pretty much decided to not trust anyone. The story is about his "growing up," not physically but emotionally and learning that there really are good people who are honest and really do care about him. The story is full of all sorts of battles! It's fast moving, entertaining and exciting. There are times when you love Jared Delany and times when you want to smack him, but you can't put the book down. Add it to your library! You won't regret it!

  • I fell in love with the characters and story lineLooneyLibrarian on Amazon

    Jim Jones is not only a great song writer but his novel Rustler's Moon has moved him up into another level of writing. I fell in love with the characters and story line. It was almost as if I was there hiding in the sage as the story develops. As Jared deals with the death of his parents and longs to become a man that you can be proud of, he faces the decision of which path to take, the one leading to evil or the straight one leading to honor ans self esteem. This book has me waiting for the next installment. I even went as far as making suggestions to Jim as how his next installment should read. I'm a hopeless romantic. If you like to read of events that takes you back to the old West, this one's for you.

  • Rustler’s Moon (Five Stars)Jill Leitner on Amazon

    I highly recommend RUSTLER'S MOON to anyone who loves a great story! As the tale
    unfolds, we are drawn into it through Jim Jones' well-defined characters. The main character's personal development adds a rewarding component to an already-captivating book.

  • An excellent bookJackie on Amazon

    An excellent book! The plot, loosely based on historical events, is gripping and believable. Excellent character development. I look forward to the next book by this author.

  • I loved it.
