Publisher's Summary

He killed before he could shoot, kissed before he could love, won before he could lose. He was too green to live, too lucky to die. He was a natural, born to be a legend. Beginner’s Luck. Bastard son of an outlaw and a whore, handsome Duane Braddock, seventeen, stumbles off the stage into lawless Titusville and gets his first look at the real world just before he’s robbed. Two weeks out of the monastery that raised him, Duane can’t ride a horse, shoot a gun, and is defenseless against the wiles of Wild West life, such as warm whiskey, wanton women, and screaming lead. But within forty-eight hours, Duane is feared by every gunman in the country as the notorious, quick-shooting, tough-riding, hard-loving Pecos Kid. Before the week is out, his victims include the town’s best and worst: the richest man, the meanest gang, the fastest gun, the prettiest woman, and the greatest friend a lucky new cowboy ever had. How it all comes to pass is how real legends are born…


Audible Editor Reviews

Broadway actor and award-winning voice talent Fred Berman gives a brilliant and nuanced performance of American author Len Levinson’s Beginner’s Luck, the first audiobook in the rip-roaring Pecos Kid series. In this crackling yarn, 17-year-old naïf Duane Braddock leaves the monastery where he was raised to seize his first taste of the whiskey and the women of the Wild West. Despite his sheltered upbringing, the handsome Duane - the progeny of an outlaw and a whore - experiences a meteoric rise to notoriety, becoming the most feared cowboy in the land.
