Publisher's Summary

Book Two continues the story of Civil War veteran Jeb Patton, now settled in the Rocky Mountains. Starting anew as a farmer in the wilderness is a difficult task and one that takes both gumption and lots of raw determination.
Jeb and Speaks Much, his new wife, learn from Sioux chief Hump that war with the white eyes may be inevitable if the buffalo hunters continue to decimate the herds the tribes depend upon for their survival.
Patton befriends a pioneer family in trouble and helps them get a start in the Montana territory with help from his friends Abe and Moses. But tranquility is not to be as a renegade killer named Crawford comes their way - out for revenge. With war on the horizon Jeb will cross paths with more old allies, mountain men Ty and Jarel.

a good listen for sure

What made the experience of listening to Death Comes at Dawn the most enjoyable?

the reader saves this and makes it run. Its like a lot of good Westerns, bad guys , heroes , dead guys, gunfights but I have to say its quite a bit more interesting than that first book the writer wrote the Drum book, this one takes off from there but has more to it at least in my way of looking at it

What other book might you compare Death Comes at Dawn to and why?

William Johnstone writes good ones. I bought Preacher's Justice not too long ago and its part of the mountain man subject he does. I would compare Benton to that one he's got some mountain men in this new book too

Which scene was your favorite?

I did like the Butterfield guy who is a hoot. He's an old coot who runs a trading shop in town and the guy has a big heart and likes his whiskey, anytime he came on it was funny

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I won't give away what happens but there was a funearal and a hanging in this one and they were on the money to my mind

Any additional comments?

Look this book is quite a bit better than that first one Benton wrote in what you might call the series, its got a better pace and it packs some real surprises, the first book was o.k. but I knew what was coming but this one some of the characters caught me off guard and the reader sunk his teeth into them

I love a good story

What made the experience of listening to Death Comes at Dawn the most enjoyable?

Its full of action and adventure. The character Jeb sticks with you . He's the kind of guy most men would like to be and would like their sons to be. He is brave and honest.

What other book might you compare Death Comes at Dawn to and why?

The story is probably as good as some of Louis Lamour stuff

Which character – as performed by Robert Thaler – was your favorite?

this is my bone of contention. Don't pick an actor to read the book. This one is too showy and I just want some body to read the thing to me and let me figure out what is going on. Like a reality show. I cant agree with the other reviews on this point

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

this hits lots of areas of interest so yeah I could finish it in two days

Any additional comments?

Benton seems to have a pretty great imagination so I'm glad I took a chance on this one its a kick of a story and I didn't want it to end. Semper Fi
