    Many of us of a certain age and probably a certain geography will recall the Pan Books of Horror This wonderful paperback series edited by Herbert van Thal was a treasure trove of gruesome and diabolical short stories Just the thing for us young teenagers back in the 1970s when teenage boys actually read books I had uite a collection of Pans all long gone All except three For forty years I’ve held on to the three volumes that each contained a novella by David CaseI still recall reading The Hunter for the first time and being well and truly blown away It was just about the best thing I’d ever read up to that point in my life And from then on in I was a David Case fanThese days although he’s not writing much any longer David Case is known as being a masterful horror writer his novella Fengriffen is rightly considered a classic and was made into a movie “And Now The Screaming Starts” and the aforementioned The Hunter was filmed as “Scream of the Wolf” But there was a time when he also wrote a few westernsPlumb Drillin’ is one of these and a wonderful tale it isIt’s the story of released convict Luke Adam DeCaire a big fearless and mysterious man who comes back to his old home town to pick up the pieces of his life He is persuaded by the pretty Jane Turner to help her and her husband who was blinded by the outlaw Apache Terremoto and his gang to re find the gold seam that the husband discovered just before he was tortured and blinded Add into the mix a pair of wild brothers Turk and Hoot the former of whom had previously raped Jane Turner and the wonderful one armed bar room raconteur Mose and you have all the ingredients for a great storyIt is for the most part a character driven story And the characterisation is wonderful There are so many great insights descriptions tales within tales observations vignettes that it’s just a joy to read Then the last third is all action relentless increasing action that doesn’t let up as all the characters come together in the scorching New Mexico landscapeDavid Case writes beautifully clearly deceptively simply and has the ability to describe things in such a way that you see the scenes very easily He is well worth seeking out and should be far widely read I can’t recommend him highly enoughLastly this book was sold to the movies with Steve Mcueen lined up to play the lead It would have been a spectacular film Alas Steve Mcueen passed away before the film was made
