I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
"....steaming hot cup of coffee.....folded his tired body into a chair....". I really enjoyed the narrator's voice and intonations. I feel like the narrator authentically knew the language of 1870's American West. Story was good with a satisfying ending. My favorite by this author and narrator is "Manhunter". I recommend "Shooter" but I highly recommend "Manhunter"
I loved all the books in the Lonesome Dove series. Was originally sold on the series when I watched the mini series starring two of my all time favorites, Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall. This motivated me to download all 4 books in this series and I loved all four and loved three of the four DVD's I subsequently purchased. Because I loved the audio book Streets of Laredo as much as the other three in the series, I ordered the DVD Streets of Laredo(the only DVD I had not yet seen). Unfortunately, James Garner just didn't do it for me. No way could he "hold a candle" to Tommy Lee Jones. But I highly recommend this audio book: great story and narration....wonderful value!
This was not as enjoyable as "Manhunter" by the same author and narrator as "Shawgo". I gave it an overall 4 because I was still feeling warm and fuzzy over my listen of "Manhunter". The story was not as strong but the performance was excellent so I gave it a begrudging 4 overall. I plan to listen to more books by Dusty Rhodes, narrated by Gene Eugene, and hope I can find some which equal the pleasure I received listening to "Manhunter".
I love genre fiction but enjoy discoving something new. Mysteries are my favorite.
I'm a big fan of this series. They have interesting characters who are a little loony, but only a little, and a well plotted story set in the late 1800's out west. This book starts out with our Sherlock Holmes-loving, cowboys-turned-investigators brothers looking into the death of a friend in China Town in San Francisco. The boys and their comely friend, Dianna, end up contending with three other groups looking for a missing prostitute called the Black Dove. Most of the action takes place in China Town and the narrator isn't bad doing the different characters. This is an unusulaly populated book and it's a small challenge to keep all the characters straight but not too bad. Very adventerous with lots of chases and shady characters and a suprisingly emotional ending. This is one of those series that helps if you read them in order.
