My first Ralph Cotton book and I'm hooked. George Guidall is probably the best narrators out there and he did another amazing job on this great story.
No one narrates westerns (or mysteries or just about anything else) better than George Guidall, and his matchless performance makes this book a pleasant listening experience. But the story is disappointing. Cotton's version of the wild west reminds me of a 1950s movie. Anyone who enjoyed the verisimilitude of HBO's extraordinary series Deadwood will likely find this novel unsatisfying. The storyline is predictable and contrived, the characters are cardboard stereotypes, and the dialog is weak. If I had been reading this book on paper, I would have abandoned it after the first couple of chapters. It was only Guidall's performance that kept me engaged to the end.
