Publisher's Summary

The final book of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove tetralogy is an exhilarating tale of legend and heroism. Captain Woodrow Call, August McCrae's old partner, is now a bounty hunter hired to track down a brutal young Mexican bandit. Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena - once Gus McCrae's sweetheart. This long chase leads them across the last wild streches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.

Critic Reviews

" Streets of Laredo is a splendid addition to the literary portrait of McMurtry's native Texas and the West that he has been creating for three decades. It's also one of his most affectingly melancholy books.... The characters are as finely etched as any McMurtry has ever minted." ( Newsweek)
"One of McMurtry's most powerful and moving achievements." ( Los Angeles Times)
"A marvelous novel in its own right and in every way a worthy successor to Lonesome Dove." ( Chicago Tribune)

A guy responds

I loved Lonesome Dove. This is not nearly as good.
The reader is almost as good as Lonesome dove. I liked him.
Seemed like some characters that got killed in LD were reinevented as new characters here.
The plot was slow.
A good enough listen, but not LD. I won't read anymore in the series at this point.

It's sure not Lonesome Dove...

Depressing, disjointed and drawn out. Maybe an abridged version would have been better, or a different narrator but the charm and humor of Lonesome Dove was totally missing.

Worthy sequel to a masterpiece

As a massive fan of Lonesome Dove, I was initially hesitant to read this as there was no way it could live up to the original and would not feature some key characters (one in particular) that made the first so great. However I’m glad I did. It has the same style as Lonesome Dove in that it swaps from the view point of many characters throughout, many new to this book. The character of Maria in particular, was excellent. The book has a more melancholy tone compared to LD, with Call an old man now, having encountered some past failures and starting to lose his edge. It is always special to hear his brief reminisces on Gus and the old Hatcreek outfit though, and makes for a worthy sequel to a masterpiece.

Special mention to Daniel Von Bargen, who is absolutely brilliant as narrator. Covering so many voices, men and women, both Texan and Mexican is no easy task but he does it tremendously.
