The Civil War ends and the Old West begins. General William T. Sherman commissions Ezra Justice to form a secret band of cavaliers who will help end the war between North and South, and Justice complies with a pro-Union posse of diverse multinationals second to none in their fighting abilities. From dusty canyon shootouts against Confederates to the horrors faced aboard the doomed Sultana steamship, these dynamic men shine as good-hearted heroes who need each other just as much as so many others need them.
A Threat to Justice, the second Old West novel from Chuck Norris and friends, finds Ezra Justice and his elite group of special operation soldiers having gone their separate ways just after the Civil War. But not for long. When General Sherman needs men to combat armed resistances against President

A Threat to Justice is the second book in the Christian historical fiction The Justice Riders series by Ken Abraham, Tim Grayem, and Aaron and Chuck Norris (yes, that Chuck Norris). Despite the star-power of Chuck Norris, and the expertise of the other authors in their various fields, A Threat to Justice does not deliver on the promise of a quality novel.
The concept of the book certainly intrigues: an elite team of Union soldiers, freshly discharged from their Civil War duties, go their separate ways and confront challenges in their transitions to civilian life. In particular, the book focuses on Captain Ezra Justice, the teams former leader, and his former slave-turned-freeman teammate Nathaniel York, who return to their home on a Tennessee plantation to find the Ku Klux Klan entrenched in the nearby town.
Unfortunately, Justice falls far short of the premises potential. All of the charactersthe primary and secondary characters, including the heroes, villains, and neutral partiesare rendered flat, two-dimensional, stereotypical, and cartoonish. The plot is rather predictable, the dialogue contrived, the descriptions poor, and the writing generally clichéd. Too many cooks spoil the broth, and too many authors spoil the plot. The historical accuracy and many of the details in the book are questionable, including the descriptions and operation of some of the period firearms.
Despite all of this, the novel is not a complete loss. The authors enthusiasm for their subject material is manifest, and the plot, though predictable, is still entertaining. More significantly, the spiritual aspects of the book (unity of believers regardless of race, for example) were well thought-outso much so that at times they were out of place in such a lightweight novel. Younger Christian teen boys might appreciate the frequent, if unbelievabl,) action scenes and simplistically settled ending. Jared Derby, Christian Book Previews.com
