Mary Doria Russell is my favorite author. Her characters are amazing, her stories are compelling and her writing is unparalleled.

Fictionalized (but well researched) story of Wyatt Earp and Josephine Sarah Marcus in Tombstone, with Doc Holliday. Russell filled out the characters making them robust and complex. I especially appreciated her treatment of Josephine.

A good piece of well researched historical fiction about a crazy time in American history where sections of the Western United States were almost completely lawless. I enjoyed getting to know some of these famous historical characters. My only complaint is that it was a bit slow in places. Bogged down with detail that would occasionally get tedious. This is not a book to rush through. Take your time and soak it all up.

A realistic, if lengthy, account of the famous gunfight, the reasons for it, and its aftermath. Full of interesting characters, although I sometimes struggled to remember the details about all of them.
