I enjoy a western story, but it is hard to find any new stories as it is a genre that is out of favor at the moment. I was so happy to find this series by Robert Hanlon and it was published in 2017. I gather that Hanlon is self-published or what they call independent publishing. Hanlon is a new author for me.
The story is a typical standard western story. There is no gray area just good versus evil. The story starts with Clint as a sixteen-year-old helping his grandfather work a mule ranch. Since coming back from the Civil War, Clint’s father is an alcoholic. Clint’s father served in the Union Army and the grandfather served with the Confederate Army. After a beating by his father, Clint leaves home to become a cowboy. He joins a cattle drive heading to Colorado and then is taken in and raised by the rancher. Clint is grown and ready to take over as the ranch foreman and then the action begins. Needless to say, the story follows a typical western pattern.
The book is well written and the plot is a classic old fashion western. The book was too short to allow for much character development, but this is book one of a trilogy. I am looking forward to the next installment.
The book is three and a half hours. Lawrence D. Palmer does an adequate job narrating the book. I would prefer someone with a baritone voice. This is my first time listening to Palmer narrate.
