Publisher's Summary

Ike McAlister returns home to Kansas after the Civil War, his soul bruised and empty. Worse, his parents have been killed by Quantrill's raiders who are still on the loose. No stranger to death and destruction, he vows to run the killers down. A clue leads him to the high plains of Colorado, but when his sister, Sue, disappears from there, his world quickly spins out of control. In the midst of this turmoil, a feisty landlady sparks an attraction, the only good thing in Ike's life.
Racing against time, he must make a deadly choice. If he continues to pursue the killers, Sue will likely never be found. But if he veers off to find his sister, the killers' trail will go cold.
Which track to follow? Will the love of family triumph in his broken heart, or will it be the passionate hate of revenge?

Well written and narrated story!

This was the first western I've listened to in a long time. I found it well written, entertaining with well developed characters in a realistic setting. The narrator did an excellent job breathing life into the characters and their stories. If you like westerns, I highly recommend The Reckoning. Psst the second in the series is due out soon.

Right Up There with Louie Lamour!

Where does The Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Reckoning has been my favorite audio book so far. The audio book grabs you from the very beginning and takes you on a fabulous journey through the wild west. I drive to work for about 2 hours and it seems like just a blink of an eye while listening to the Reckoning.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot of the book is the best part. Where a traditional plot would end, the Reckoning takes the listener on a couple nice corners that keep you guessing.

What does Tom Sleeker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The book was well spoken and Tom did a fabulous job with the different characters. He brought them to life in your mind. Great job!

If you could take any character from The Reckoning out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Of course, I would take Ike out to dinner. The author did a brilliant job with the character development on all the characters, especially Ike. Ike isn't some perfect hero that dances around bullets without getting hit, he is a little unlucky, gets beat up by the bad guys but is tough as heck.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to the next book! HURRY!
