Profoundly hilarious

If you could sum up Calico Trail in three words, what would they be?

Refreshing and honest

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rube is probably my favourite - he goes from an awkward "aw shucks" to a hard no-nonsense man in control of any situation. He has a gentleness that is very endearing, and a strength that is very reassuring.

What about David R. Lewis’s performance did you like?

Loved Lewis' deep gravelly voice and his seemingly genuine way of telling his story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Lawmen who get the difficult jobs done efficiently but with side-splitting humour.

Any additional comments?

This author needs to produce more books.
