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.
Everyone tells Duane Braddock to stay out of Escondido. But a month alone in the desert, even with his keen Apache-trained survival skills, is a month too long. He’s just partial to trouble - and when he’s hired to bring order to the outlaw town, there’s plenty for the taking.
Before the day is out, four bullies are dead and the cold-blooded killer responsible is just warming up for his real target - Braddock. Duane knows that the truth about his family and his past is at stake, sending him on a vengeance ride that will end in a hail of lightning quick lead.
Narrator Fred Berman’s parched growl fits Len Levinson’s latest installment of his Pecos Kid series, Outlaw Hell, like a colt in its holster.
Duane Braddock, the Pecos Kid, is in hiding, accused of a murder he didn’t commit. After a month in hiding, the Apache-trained gunslinger returns to the town of Escondido, where he is hired to maintain the peace. He soon finds himself face to face with a killer gunning for Braddock.
Berman capably takes on Levinson’s cast of wily heroes and bandits with a range of voices and the right amount of urgency for this hardboiled western.
