I enjoyed the story--the author selected a very engaging and entertaining subject. However, the believability of the dialogue was poor, and the ending was disappointing. Despite all this, I enjoyed listening to it.
Written in a very simple "lawman-esque" writing style, the book is very enjoyable. The author does a good job of telling some very interesting Ranger stories that took place from the 60s to the 90s.
I really enjoyed the narrarator. He did a good job of speaking "Texan" (except for one spot, "San Antonio de Bexar" isn't pronounced with an x).
I stuck with this book and was pleased with the plot and characters. Very enjoyable story.
Two significant distractions for me: the writer was "over the top" in his descriptions of scenery and characters. For example, I've lost count of the number of characters who smoke cigarettes that emit a "whisp (or shadow, or finger) of blue (or grey or cloudy) smoke" who happen to be standing in the shadow of a doorway. The other distraction was the piano music. Typically played at the beginning (or end) of a chapter, the music made the production of the book seem very corny.
Enjoyable plot. Corny piano music.
