Publisher's Summary

There is only one thing that Jefferson Nighthawk, the original Widowmaker, really wanted to do, and that was retire on a far-away planet and raise a garden. There were still two clones of him to keep the peace and carry on his legend. Unfortunately for him, his two clones have come to a disagreement. When a widowmaker takes on a widowmaker, everyone runs for cover. There is only one man who can stand up to the clones of the Widowmaker... the Widowmaker himself.


What the Critics Say

"Resnick's usual gifts for hard-boiled space opera, including even plausible future weaponry and not too much cynicism, keep things humming toward an ending indicating possible sequels." (Booklist)

Action, adventure, aliens... I love it!

If you are a Clint Eastwood cowboy/Jack Reacher fan, you will love this story. It is, in fact a New Frontier western style shoot 'em up with lovely science fiction futuristic applications. While I enjoy esoteric science fiction as much as as anyone, the adventures of the gritty, cool, calm, confident, intelligent intergalactic bounty hunter are instantly engaging, fast-paced and pure fun to read.

Great FAST read!

I loved the +1 on the trilogy, easy read, each character is developed enough for a short book (less then 10 hours), love the idea of thinking of one person in 3 stages of they're life

I wish the book could have been twice as long & go into more sc-fi, it's more a spaghetti western taking place in the future, that's the only reason why I didn't give it more stars

BUT, it's a great read & entertaining & pretty original, the terminator might be a pseudo-cloning... Widowmaker

Rudnicki, Guidall, Lee are just a few narrators that are money
